Now through 10 p.m.:

Temperatures are nearing their mid-afternoon peak and will only recede to about 58 degrees by 10 p.m. under a light, southerly flow of air.

10 p.m. through 6 a.m. Wednesday:

The mercury stays in the 50s overnight. Clouds increase toward dawn, as does the potential for some rain. The chance for rain doubles between 5 and 6 a.m., but remains at about a 25 percent chance.

6 a.m. Wednesday to 7 p.m.. Wednesday:

The chance for rain increases from 25 to 50 percent over this time, skies become entirely cloudy for much of the day and winds increase. It will be the week's warmest day with temperatures reaching 60 degrees by noon and the middle 60s in the 3 and 4 p.m. hours. Southwest winds will gust between 20 and 30 mph from 7 a.m. through about 8 p.m. That could make it feel much cooler again in downtown Buffalo as the winds pass over the 34-degree open waters of Lake Erie.

7 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday:

Rain is likely. Temperatures drop from 59 degrees at 7 p.m. down to 49 degrees by 7 a.m.
