BUFFALO, N.Y. — Conditions on Sunday night will be rather calm and we will have some light rain gradually come to an end. Temperatures will be hanging around the mid to upper 30s.
Monday will be a relatively cloudy day across Western New York, and the precipitation will have come to an end. The cloud cover will be stubborn, so any sun on Monday will be limited and expect it to be pretty gray. Temperatures will be in the upper 30s to low 40s.
Tuesday will be another calm and quiet day. Some areas will be bobbing in and out of the clouds across Western New York. Expect temperatures to rebound nicely with daytime highs around the mid 40s.
As for the middle of the week, it is going to be eventful for sure. We are expecting a heavy, steady, and soaking rain across all of Western New York on Wednesday.
Winds will be very strong as the warm front passes through with a southerly wind gusting to about 45 mph. However, once the cold front slams through on Wednesday afternoon/evening, the winds will be gusting up to 50 and even 55 mph. This may warrant some advisories and warnings from the National Weather Service for all of Western New York. We are anticipating it, since the ingredients are all there but we will be watching this very closely. Temperatures will surge into the mid to upper 50s on Wednesday but come crashing down once the cold front sweeps through. Overnight lows will drop about 15 to 20 degrees from their daytime highs with lows around the upper 20s to low 30s.
Thursday is still a blustery day and the winds could be just as strong, if not stronger, across Western New York. The cold will stick around and there is the potential for some lake effect snow in the Southern Tier that may lead to some accumulation.
