It's the beginning of March but it might as well be the middle of January. Temperatures are going to stay 10 to 20 degrees below average for most of the week and wind chills will make those numbers feel below zero at times.
That wind will drive periods of snow showers off of the Great Lakes. Accumulations are not expected to be problematic but the timing could be.
A weak system will drop in from the northwest on Tuesday. By the afternoon, a passing cold front will kick up extra snow showers. That could coincide with the evening commute. 1 to 3 inches of snow may fall within a few hours. There could be some areas where visibility is very low due to blowing snow so plan a little extra time for any afternoon or evening travel.
Wednesday and Thursday will stay bitter cold but the air should dry out a little more, limiting snow showers.
as of Monday night, Buffalo's season snow total was over 111". The average for the entire season is 94". By the way, March typically brings about a foot of snow to the region. so this current weather setup isn't unusual. It's just becoming unwelcome for a lot of us.
Milder air will get here this weekend. but so will a storm system with rain and wind for Sunday. Storm Team 2 will be keeping tabs on it all week. Check back here for updates.
