In addition to the flood watch for Genesee County issued by the National Weather Service, a high wind warning has been issued along with a hazardous weather outlook.

The flood watch is for 6 p.m. through Friday afternoon.

The high wind warning is in effect from 2 a.m. through 10 p.m. Friday.

The hazardous weather outlook starts tonight, potentially lasting until Wednesday.

As a cold front crosses the area Friday morning, there is the potential for the development of a squall like that could producd damaging winds and heavy rain. Strong winds of 25 to 35 mph, with gusts up to 60 mph, are predicted. Additional strong winds with gusts from 45 to 50 mph are possible for Saturday.

"Winds of this magnitude will bring down some trees and power lines. Travel will be difficult in high profile vehicles, especially along the Thruway."
