Temperatures move up ahead of a period of rain on Monday before settling down again to seasonably cool readings by Tuesday...cool enough, in fact, for some lake effect rain to develop toward Tuesday morning. We should be somewhat drier on Wednesday. There is model uncertainty on the path of a storm system for the period from Thursday into next weekend, but there is a chance that system could bring a showery pattern for several days.
TONIGHT: Clear early with some high clouds later. Not quite so cool. Low: 46 valleys-52 metro area. Light wind.
MONDAY; Sunshine, then Increasing Clouds AM with a period of rain moving in during the afternoon from the west. Chance of isolated thunder later in the day and early evening. Briefly milder. High: 74, turning cooler late.
TUESDAY: A band of Lake Effect Rain will oscillate across the Niagara Frontier from the southtowns to the northtowns, weakening later in the day. Breezy & somewhat cooler. High: 65. Gusty SW wind metro area.
WEDNESDAY: Partly Sunny and mainly rainfree, but a few showers can't be totally ruled out. High: 69.
THURSDAY through SUNDAY; Mostly Cloudy with a chance of occasional showers each day. There is currently uncertainty about the path of a storm system, so it's still possible WNY could escape most of this rain. High: 64-67.Read full story
