Sunshine this afternoon brought temperatures back into the upper 30s and some low 40s. A cold front will drop in from the northwest this evening, bringing increasing clouds and some mixed to snow showers from the evening commute on. Initially this snow will melt on contact, and most areas should expect little to no accumulation. As temperatures fall tonight, there is a better chance of a dusting particularly in the southtowns and hills southeast of Buffalo. Overall, this will not cause any big impacts this evening, but a few slick spots are possible overnight. The snow showers diminish to a few flurries across the higher terrain toward Thursday morning and clouds start to break from north to south revealing sunshine during the day.
An extended quiet pattern will set up over WNY through the weekend. Temperatures remain well below average for the finish of the week, with a few flurries possible. More sunshine will stick around with readings in the low to mid 30s this weekend. Temperatures really start to moderate Monday-Wednesday along with a continued quiet weather pattern. A deeper storm will result in a quick hit of strong wind gusts next Wednesday night and Thursday morning along with rain showers.
