Rain with patchy icy mix will continue this evening with temps climbing through the 30s to around 40 in the warmest spots. Use caution driving as roads will still have icy patches on them as temps warm.

A cold front will cross the region overnight sweeping widespread mostly rain out of WNY. A few scattered flurries are expected overnight as colder air charges into the region. Winds will also increase gusting 40 to 50 mph late tonight and through Wednesday. Black ice may also be a problem for the Weds morning commute on untreated surfaces and where the wind doesn’t dry the pavement.

Flurries and snow showers will increase on Wednesday producing changeable driving conditions from flurries and fine road conditions to scattered heavier snow showers producing poor visibility and slippery roads. Temps on Wednesday will hold in the mid to upper 20s early then drop heading through the afternoon.

Quiet weather heads in for Thursday with some sun and highs in the 30s to near 40. Mixed precip of mostly rain with patchy wet snow look likely Thursday night into Friday morning. Temps Friday will fall with gusty breezes and drier weather prevailing after noon.

Colder air arrives for the weekend with fairly quiet weather for Saturday. Low pressure then passing to our southeast on Sunday may produce some patchy light snow especially south. It’s a close call and the latest trend is bringing this system farther north so we’ll watch it closely and keep you posted.
