BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — WIND WARNING for Chautauqua & S. Erie County until 8pm Monday with gusts to 60mph.
WIND ADVISORY for all of WNY until 10pm Monday with gusts to 50mph.

Winds will increase from the south overnight bringing gusts to near 60mph for Chautauqua & S. Erie counties as temperatures rise into the 50s with rain showers. The strong winds will slow early in the morning as rain showers and warm temperatures in the 50s cover much of WNY to start the day.

After lunch the winds will ratchet up with gusts building back to near 50mph from the SW as bands of lake snow develop mid afternoon into the evening. The snow bands will start near the Southtown (including the stadium) near the dinner hour then slide south into S. Erie County later in the evening. Weather conditions at the game will be cold and very windy with temperatures in the 30s (wind chills teens) and winds from the west 20-25mph gusting to 40mph.
