As Tuesday’s storm continues to pull away from the coast, chilly and breezy weather will set up shop over the region through the weekend. In general, we will not get full sun in the coming days with rounds of clouds and even some flurries possible through the end of the week. The breeze coming off the Lakes means business too. Look for average winds between 10 and 20 mph through tomorrow with gusts up to 25 mph. This strong NW flow will yield intense lake effect snow bands along the Great Lakes for parts of Michigan, New York, and NW PA too. Several feet of snow are projected to fall around the city of Buffalo, New York. **We may see some scattered snow squalls tomorrow afternoon, especially over western areas. As these lines of snow showers pass through we can expect lower visibility, but not much in the way of accumulation locally.**

A reinforcing shot of cold air arrives by this weekend behind the cold front and snow squalls. While we stay quiet precipitation-wise, temperatures will be the lowest of the season so far. High temperatures will be in the middle 30s and low temperatures in the 20s. As you might guess, the winds Saturday and Sunday will make things feel even colder.

There is some moderation of temperatures for Thanksgiving week, with highs getting back into the 50s later next week. While most of Thanksgiving week looks quiet, something appears to be brewing by the end of the week. Perhaps some snow or a wintry mix is on the table by next Friday/Saturday. It’s too early to know specifics, but we’ll monitor and keep you posted. That will be our next chance at any real precipitation. Otherwise, the next week looks quiet. Just breezy and cold!
