Ole Man Winter will make at least one last appearance this week across WNY. There's still some uncertainty heading into Wednesday evening. But right now, it looks as if areas north of Buffalo will see a mix of rain, snow sleet and freezing rain starting Wednesday evening going into Thursday morning. Enough to create a slick commute to work Thursday morning.
Colder air over Canada will collide with warm air over Pennsylvania, creating a Tug-O-War between winter and spring-like temperatures across WNY from Wednesday to Friday. Northern counties will find themselves with sloppy wet snow from time to time while Southern counties will remain mild and soggy with rain showers. Temperatures to the north will sink into the 30s with areas near the NY/PA line reaching the 50s for daytime highs.
This springtime battle will begin Tuesday night and last until Friday. The boundary will shift north and south sending temps surging and sinking over the course of just a few miles. Communities north of Buffalo should prepare for some sloppy spring snow and freezing rain, possibly slowing down your commute Thursday morning.
The 7 First Alert Weather Team will be tracking the forecast and keeping you one step ahead of the storm all week long.
