Western New York’s weather roller coaster is back on the upswing, at least for the next couple days.
After a weekend where summerlike record heat was followed by snow, the area will see a warming trend through midweek, the National Weather Service reports.
Temperatures Monday should range from the low 40s near the lakes to near 50 inland under sunny skies. Tuesday is expected to be cloudy and a few degrees warmer with a slight chance of showers.
Then, March will blow in like a lion Wednesday, forecasters say, with strong winds and rounds of thunderstorms early and late in the day. Temperatures are due to drop from highs of 55 to 60 down to below freezing Wednesday night. The wintry spell, accompanied by snow showers and the potential for lake-effect snow, is expected to continue through Friday.
