BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Most of us will need the umbrella and the snow brush this weekend.

Western New York gets a mixed bag of precipitation starting Saturday. We know a lot of you have plans, so here's how your weekend is shaping up.

FRIDAY

AFTERNOON: 43

For some of you, it's t-shirt weather. It's a much more comfortable afternoon and evening outside. Expect a few drops out of the sky. But you can leave the umbrella behind. The real fun doesn't begin until early Saturday.

SATURDAY
MORNING: 35
AFTERNOON: 37

Showers begin to arrive after midnight. A bulk of the rain doesn't arrive until around breakfast. In other words, have the umbrella handy as you finish your Christmas shopping. Rain will begin to transition over to snow showers on the Southern Tier hills by late morning. Everyone else will see a rain-snow mix for the afternoon. For the evening, areas in Niagara and Orleans County will continue to see a rain-snow mix. Areas south and east of Buffalo will see snow stick to the ground. Folks living on the hills will need to shovel heavy, wet snow by Sunday morning. A slushy accumulation in Buffalo and the Southtowns.

As for temperature, bundle up! A stiff breeze out of the west during the evening will make things feel like it's in the teens.

SUNDAY
MORNING: 35
AFTERNOON: 31

If you're traveling to Pittsburgh from Buffalo, expect to run into snow showers on the Thruway. The stiff breeze will continue through the day.

MONDAY
MORNING: 21
AFTERNOON: 30
Chilly with sun & clouds
