The watch is in effect from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning. The National Weather Service warns that high lake levels and brisk northeast winds may locally increase lake levels along the south shore of Lake Ontario and wave action may further increase shoreline flooding and erosion. Residents on or near the shore are advised to take action to protect their property and listen for later statements or warnings.
