BUFFALO, N.Y. — The sunshine from Wednesday and Thursday will help melt any snow that accumulated early this week.
Thursday will be breezy with scattered clouds. High temperatures will be in the upper 30s or low 40s. It will stay breezy with southwesterly winds gusting to 35 mph.
The breeze will hang on for Friday as a quick-moving cold front comes through. This front will bring scattered rain and wet snow showers around midday lasting through the evening. Minimal snow accumulations are expected, if any. Temperatures will once again be in the 30s.
A large East Coast storm will develop over the weekend, but it looks like it will be too far to the east to bring any major rain or snow chances. A few snow showers may pop up off the lakes on Saturday and Sunday as winds turn more northerly. And with a mostly cloudy sky, high temperatures will only be in ther uuper 30s each day.
Temperatures will hold steady in the 30s for the first half of next week. There may be a couple of fast-moving systems to watch as the jet stream remains active. At this point, there doesn't appear to be anything too disruptive on the horizon.
