A sharp ridge will help pull warm southerly air into the Buffalo Niagara region during the middle of the week, forecasters said.

"Temperatures both Wednesday night and Thursday will easily be more typical of mid-summer than of mid-spring," weather service forecasters reported.

The last 80-degree reading in Buffalo came on Sept. 22 when it hit 81 degrees.

The last time it was as warm was Sept. 10. The temperature that day made it to 88 degrees.

It would be the first 80-degree reading in April since 2013.

The average date of the first 80-degree day in Buffalo is May 6.
