If you've spent any time outside this weekend then you know it certainly has not felt like mid-February here in WNY, which usually we're in the mid 30s. For the remainder of tonight we'll see partly cloudy skies with overnight lows falling into the low 30s, with some upper 20s possible across the North Country.
The above-normal temperatures are expected to continue through most of next week. We'll see more abundant sunshine for President's Day on Monday, with highs reaching the low to mid 40s. Clouds will begin to increase late Monday, with showers arriving during the mid to late morning hours on Tuesday, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to have the rain gear with you as you head out the door for work on Tuesday. As the showers push eastward, high pressure will build into WNY once again and bring us more plentiful sunshine and very unseasonably warm temperatures on both Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s.
Looking ahead to the later portions of next week, we begin to cool down on Friday, with showers arriving later in the day. Most of these showers right now look to continue into Saturday, with colder air and more seasonable temperatures arriving for Saturday and Sunday.
