A weak cold front was pushed through the region yesterday evening by a large high pressure system moving down from Canada. That push is giving us one last day of cold, dry weather with this afternoon's high only reaching the mid 30s. A gusty northwesterly breeze will produce wind chill values in the lower 20s.
The winds will start to calm down overnight and start blowing out of the southwest tomorrow. Saturday's high should cross the 40-degree barrier. The passage of a weak warm front on Saturday night promises temperatures in the 50s on Sunday and a second warm front on Sunday night will push Monday's high into at least the mid 60s. That Sunday night warm front will most likely be accompanied by some rain. The rain won't be a problem here as November is running slightly dry, but it is going to cause a big mess in the Buffalo area as the seven feet of snow rapidly melts.
Looking ahead to next week Tuesday is going to have great travel weather with a high in the mid 50s and a mix of sun and clouds. There is some concern that a coastal storm could affect us on Wednesday but for the moment it looks like that storm will stay out to sea. Thanksgiving Day is looking sunny and cool with a high in the mid 40s.
