Spring & winter battle for WNY this weekend!

Wet & Wild Weekend on the Way to WNY

A frontal boundary separating winter from spring will slide into the Great Lakes and slice WNY into two pieces over the weekend.  Ole Man Winter will sneak across Lake Ontario and keep the Northtowns in the 40s and even some upper 30s along the shoreline communities, while areas south of Buffalo from the Southtowns to the Southern Tier will see the 50 degree mark and close to the 60s near the NY/PA line.

While temperatures will be decidedly different, the sky conditions will be very similar.  The weather both north & south will be cloudy & wet as the front will generate rain showers across WNY throughout the weekend.  So while some communities are shivering in a cold winter rain, others will be able to sport only a spring jacket while dodging the raindrops.

Just a 10 mile shift in this boundary can result in big changes for your backyard and the entire 7 First Alert Forecast team will be watching this weather system to keep you one step ahead of the weather this weekend.  Check this link for the latest 7 First Alert Forecast and book mark it so you can stay up to date as the wet & wild weekend approaches.  WKBW.com/Weather
