SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV)

Lake Ontario water levels are higher than average by a foot at about 247.9 feet. Unfortunately, according to the U.S. Army corps of engineers who regularly monitor all the Great Lakes are expecting water levels to continue to rise about 7 inches by June 10th.

This could lead to some lake shore flooding when the winds become gusty out of the west, northwest, southwest or north along the United States Lake Ontario shoreline. 

Thankfully the threat of gusty winds out of the just mentioned wind directions appears to be quite low for the foreseeable future anyways. 

Of course if any Lake Shore Flood watches or warnings are issued by the National Weather Service, the NewsChannel 9 Storm Team will let you know.
