Temperatures soared near 18 C in the Buffalo area today and rain began falling heightening fears of severe flooding after last week’s epic snowfall.

Bands of lake-effect snow off Lake Erie dumped anywhere from less than 30 cm to more than two metres of snow across western New York state.

Minor flooding was reported as several creeks overflowed.

The big concern is the heavy weight of snow and water on roofs which is why many home and business owners are frantically trying to shovel their rooftops.
