Rainy weather forces cancelation of Gus Macker

It was a stormy Sunday morning across Western New York. 

The National Weather Service reported a heavy thunderstorm moved through the Southern Tier during the 9am hour.  Earlier, a heavy downpour around 6:00 caused some flooding problems on the State Thruway at Walden Avenue.  The left lanes were closed for about 45 minutes. 

The weather forced cancelation of day two of the Gus Macker three-on-three basketball tournament downtown.  With a forecast of showers and scatted thunderstorms, organizers called off the competition because of concerns over player safety.   It will not be rescheduled. 

Forecasters say the rainy weather and relatively cool temperatures will continue for another few days.
