An expansive cold air mass dropping southward into the nation will dominate our weather pattern for much of this week. Not only will it result in lake-effect precipitation, but eventually, it becomes cold enough to produce some snowflakes across some of the higher terrain with the greatest chance of it sticking during overnight, Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Initially, it develops through the Buffalo metro Tuesday afternoon, and then slowly drops southward from the city during the evening. North and south of the lake effect band, it will be drier. Any leftover lake effect precipitation drifts northward while weakening toward the metro Thursday morning.
Temperatures moderate to near seasonable for the weekend, but another significant dip in readings develop during next week.
