High pressure builds back into the Great Lakes region tonight, keeping the weather pattern dry and tranquil, with partly-mostly clear skies. This will allow for favorable radiational cooling to take place. Temperatures will fall at or just below freezing for most areas overnight.
It’s looking like a tranquil and somewhat milder than normal Monday with highs in the mid-50s for most. It will feel cooler in areas closer to the lakes with prevailing onshore winds. Expect a good deal of sunshine early Monday with light winds out of the west-southwest. Cloud cover will gradually increase later in the day.
Tuesday will be mainly dry for much of the day with partly sunny skies with a passing shower possible to the south of Buffalo, mainly near the state line. Rain chances will start to increase Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. A more significant cold front arrives Wednesday night into Thursday, bringing another round of rain, some wind, and colder weather for the end of the week. A few flakes may even mix in Thursday night into Friday morning as moisture continues to wrap around into WNY. Temperatures will remain cooler, in the 40s through next weekend and there will be a few windows for rain and snow showers across the viewing area.
