BUFFALO, N.Y. — Clusters of slow-moving storms have been producing strong winds and torrential rain in the Southern Tier this afternoon. There are currently two flood alerts in effect. 

A Flash Flood Warning is in effect for central Cattaraugus County until 7 p.m. 

A Flash Flooding Warning is also in effect for southeastern Chautauqua County until 8:15 p.m.

Doppler radar is estimating rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour in western Cattaraugus county and eastern Chautauqua County. This cluster of storms will continue to slowly move to the west and southwest at about 15 mph for the next hour or so. This will likely be the final batch of storms for the evening.
