Flakes Around the Corner?!

Written by John DiPasquale:

After another mild October day here in WNY today to begin the new week, this week will be much different than the last several weeks when readings have been well above average with quite a bit of sun sprinkled in there too!  After intervals of sun, mild winds & highs in the 60s kick off the new week, tomorrow following a strong cold front late tonight the temperatures will have a tough time making it to the low 50s with a cold wind making it feel even colder.  There should be some showers around to start the day, but by 9 or 10 o'clock Tuesday morning most, if not all, showers should be gone. 

Wednesday into Thursday, a strong nor'easter will be developing east of Maine & then swinging up into the Canadian Maritimes, which will yank the coldest air of the season down over us under a gusty, cold west to northwest flow.  This unseasonably cold flow will instigate some limited lake showers of rain &/or snow for Wednesday through Friday that may drop a light accumulation on top of some of the higher hills, but I believe most of us will see little, if any, accumulation due the temps being so marginal & the ground being so warm.  Either way, the first flakes of the season should fly for most  later this week & quite possibly into the weekend with an Alberta Clipper.  Stay tuned.  I guess the other shoe is finally about to drop!

Have a great day & enjoy the best weather day of the week today!    


  1. Nippy out there for sure. Still liking the prospect of the first flakes for most before the weekend is done. KBUF reported a trace of snow earlier today so they're on the board.

    Keep an eye on the post-Halloween period for some potential storminess.

  2. Growing season is officially over. 32 degrees in Gananda. Ready for the first snow of the season.
