Lake effect snow showers will linger mainly well south of Buffalo through the day today, with just a few snow showers across the Lake Ontario counties. The main focus for snow will be from around Springville heading southward to the PA line. Most of this snow should dissipate by this afternoon, but not before some areas within the warning area pick up an additional 5-9″.
Tonight, it will turn very chilly. Areas north of the city will see clearing skies and temperatures in the single digits. South of Buffalo, clouds will hang tough allowing temperatures to stay a bit warmer, near 20. It will be overall quiet as most of the lake snow will be over.
It continues to look mainly dry with a mostly cloudy sky Sunday. The temperatures will be a bit warmer, moderating into the low 30s. A few insignificant snow/rain showers will move in Sunday night.
Next week starts gloomy with a few light mixed to rain showers through Monday evening and Tuesday as temperatures return back above average in the low 40s. A cold front arriving Tuesday will bring windy and colder conditions back through the midweek, with some more lake effect snow possible. This will drag much colder air southward into the Great Lakes in advance of Christmas.
