The winds ramped up last night ahead of our developing storm system. Temperatures rise into the 30s into the morning drive with slick roads even around Buffalo as temperatures are slow to get above 32.
Atlantic Canada took a serious hit from the weekend system as it passed, dropping almost 50 cm of snow in parts of New Brunswick, torrential rains in Nova Scotia, and a period of freezing rain for areas around and north of the Bay of Fundy. The wintry mix of precipitation will spread into our area this morning and diminish from west and south later tonight with snow northern and western sections ending Wednesday morning.
The best snow chances continue through Thursday morning before conditions briefly pause.
One of the places where the air temperature dipped into the teens was a spot in Duanesburg, which recorded a temperature at 7:47 a.m. of -13 degrees.
The highest wind gusts look to be 5 p.m.to midnight with gusts 40-45 miles per hour & a few gusts perhaps 50-55 miles per hour (from the southwest). Dangerously cold wind chills will likely close out the week. We'll have a very slight chance of light snow by Saturday.
TODAY: Windy. Snow Moves In by PM. Winds SE 15-25 miles per hour.
