The National Weather Service has issued an urban and small stream flood advisory for Northern Yates County until 8:15 p.m.

At about 5 p.m. Doppler Radar indicated heavy rain was falling and will result in minor flooding. Locations in the advisory include but are not limited to Penn Yan.

Up to 2 inches of rain has fallen in the advisory area. Heavy rain will be ending in the area over the next half hour, but small streams and culverts may continue to run high for the next couple of hours.

Exessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on small creeks and streams, and ponding of water in urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses, as well as other poor drainage areas and low lying spots.
