BUFFALO, N.Y. — After a sunny and warm holiday weekend, a more unsettled pattern will take hold for this week.
Clouds have rolled in Monday night which are the remnants of showers that moved over Ontario earlier. These clouds will stay put overnight with temperatures falling from the low 80s to upper 60s by Tuesday morning.
Then Western New York will play host to showers and storms of their own Tuesday, so umbrellas will be handy for the day. Look for scattered showers and storms to develop and move through mid-morning through lunchtime. It's like that a band of storms will develop and track from west to east pretty quickly across the region with a few showers developing in it's wake for the afternoon. That first line though could bring thunder, lightning, brief heavy rain and gusty winds but is not expected to be severe.
Again, once that line moved through it could pave the way for spotty showers behind it Tuesday afternoon. Otherwise, it'll stay a bit cloudy with temperatures hovering in the upper 70s. A cold front will move through Tuesday evening and sweep the forecast dry after that.
Wednesday looks to be a bit more cloudy but dry with morning lows in the low 60s and afternoon highs in the mid-upper 70s. Thursday and Friday look to be warmer with highs back in the 80s but there is the chance for a isolated showers and storms each day. Likely wont be a widespread impact though the current potential is something to be aware of.
