Happy Friday Bloggers! The polar branch of the jet stream will continue to stay south of us through much of, if not the remainder of the month into the start of April! Temperatures will be in the 30s the majority of the next 5 to 7 days, possibly hitting 40 a couple times mid to late next week, which is still well below the average of mid to upper 40s for the last week of March.
As far as snow goes, we will see occasional lake snow today into the start of Saturday, before it essentially shuts down later Saturday into Saturday night with high pressure building in from the northwest. Then we wait & see about late Sunday night into Monday with the next winter storm coming up from the south. At this point, it looks like most of it will stay off to the south & east, but it looks like a close call, plus it's still a few days out. How strong & effective will high pressure be to the northwest be in keeping the inland storm at bay for us here in WNY, how quickly does the coastal storm take over, & where exactly does the coastal low set up with relation to the coast??? We'll see how this evolves, but the POTENTIAL for at least a minor accumulation of snow does exist late Sunday night into Monday. We'll see...Stay tuned to News 8 through the weekend for updates.
Have a great Friday & weekend everyone!
