BUFFALO, N.Y. — High pressure will stay in control of the weather for most of the Eastern U.S. for a few more days. As a result, Western New York will stay dry through Friday.
Temperatures will drop back into the 50s by Wednesday morning. As usual, lakeshore communities will stay several degrees higher than inland communities.
Plan for lots of sunshine again Wednesday. Afternoon temperatures will range from the mid 70s in the Southern Tier to 80 degrees in the Buffalo area. Humidity levels will still be low and a light breeze will pick up from the northwest in the afternoon. Temperatures will hover near 60 degrees late Wednesday night.
Thursday is pretty much a repeat. The only change will be a couple of extra degrees on the morning low and afternoon high compared to Wednesday.
There still won't be much that changes for Friday.
If only we could hold onto this quiet pattern through the weekend. That's not in the cards this time around as a weak cold front gets closer to us on Saturday. Isolated thunderstorms may start popping up in the afternoon. Saturday is certainly not a washout, but anyone with outdoor plans including those participating in this year's Ride for Roswell should keep an eye on radar just in case.
Saturday will feel a little more humid ahead of that cold front. Afternoon temperatures will be in the low 80s. Sunday looks dry for now with some morning clouds giving way to sunshine. Morning temperatures will be in the low 70s. Afternoon temperatures will be in the low 80s again.
It still looks like some more intense heat and humidity could be here for early next week. Highs may be near 90 degrees around Buffalo for a couple of days.
