How does that saying go again? If you don't like the weather in Buffalo, just wait a few minutes! However, in this case, we'll have to wait a full work week for the thermometer to read 70F again. 

An upper low that ushered in unseasonably cool air this weekend and helped spark a few flakes off of Lake Erie and Ontario on Sunday lifts off to our north today. However, we'll still be below average through much of the week. Average daytime highs should be in the mid to upper 60s for this time of year. Temperatures will be in the upper 50s through Wednesday. 

We finally break 60F on Thursday and hit 70F on Friday. The weekend stays warm, with a few showers on Saturday. It'll be a welcome sign to those who braved the cold, and in some spots snow on Sunday.

And while much of the Northeast and Midwest was dealing with the chill this weekend, cities in Alaska were basking in record setting warmth across the state. From Fairbanks to Anchorage, thermometers across the state warmed into the 70s and 80s. 

In case you're wondering, the latest the Buffalo Airport ever recorded a trace of snow was on June 10th. Hopefully, that's the last flake of snow we'll see until October.
