Partly to mostly cloudy skies tonight as a cold front drops southeastward from Canada. The cold front will continue to sag south of the region overnight and will reach the New York and Pennsylvania border by early Monday morning. This weak cold front may bring a period of snow flurries to our northern counties and we may see a mixing of rain-snow flurries towards the Southern Tier and Northern Pa. Not much accumulation expected for the metro but the areas of higher terrain have a better shot at seeing a dusting to under a half an inch of snow. Winds will shift out of the N/NW, bringing colder air to western New York to start off the work week.
Temperatures range below average for this time of year Monday and Tuesday in the wake of the cold front sliding to the south and east. Strong high pressure with a dry airmass will work into the region through Monday. Cloud cover decreases through Monday afternoon as sunshine returns to western New York! The weather pattern looks settled for the majority of the work week as sunshine dominates the region along with rising temperatures. Daytime highs may be flirting with 60 degrees Thursday and Friday. Temperatures stay mild to kick off the upcoming weekend with highs in the 50s but rain chances look to increase. A frontal zone will bring moisture back to the area to round out the work week and for the upcoming weekend, bringing the chance for scattered rain showers Friday-Saturday.
