Clouds will continue to fade out overnight. For the few areas that saw a few spotty rain showers during the afternoon, the remnant area of low-pressure leftover from Ian will continue to drift east overnight dragging any remaining showers with it. As clouds clear out overnight, there will be room for some fog to form across the So. Tier valleys and possibly even a little bit of patchy frost. Even the coolest areas should remain just above freezing. Wednesday will bring wide-open sunshine and temperatures approaching 70° by afternoon.
Thursday will mark the approach of our next system, and while clouds appear likely to increase over WNY during the day, the chance for rain should hold off until overnight and into Friday. This window for rain will contain two cold fronts, the 2nd of which will deliver cooler air once again to WNY, bringing the chance for lake effect rain showers to continue during the day on Friday. While it will remain cool overnight into Saturday AM, some drier air is starting to show up in models that may be able to halt the early Saturday morning window for the lake effect that had been looking cold enough for drizzle and even a few wet flakes across the higher elevations. We will continue to keep an eye on this chance, though it now looks minimal compared to yesterday.
The weekend and the start of next week are looking dry with a warming trend factoring in on the heels of a cool Saturday.
