Overnight freeze hits all of Western New York

Temperatures, as expected, dipped into the 20s in much of Western New York overnight Tuesday, as most of the region endured its first frost of the season.

Unofficial spotters’ reports compiled by the National Weather Service listed a low of 25 degrees, in both Warsaw and Attica, in Wyoming County. Other overnight lows included 28 in Niagara Falls and 29 in Amherst, Clarence and Lancaster.

The official overnight low at the National Weather Service office in Cheektowaga was 31 degrees, according to meteorologist Jon Hitchcock.

The presence of insulating clouds in the inland Southern Tier area kept temperatures from going down farther than 25 degrees.

“It was pretty uniform, in the upper 20s, across Western New York,” Hitchcock said.
