New record highs were set on Sunday in both Niagara Falls and Buffalo among dozens of other locations in the Northeast and Midwest. The same air mass has been sitting over that region for about a week and with nothing to push it out, the start of this week will feature more of the same heat.
A long-awaited cold front will arrive Wednesday evening. There won't be much in the way of rain, in fact there's barely a risk of a sprinkle Wednesday. Much more comfortable air will drain in Thursday and Friday but the cool-down comes with some unsettled conditions.
Just a few showers are possible Friday. Saturday and Sunday look spectacular.
