A cold front moving through the area is responsible for the snow you’re dusting off your windshields Monday morning.
The official reading was 1.5 inches early Monday outside the National Weather Service offices at Buffalo Niagara International Airport, according to meteorologist Tony Ansuini. Up to 2 inches was expected before the snow winds down and mostly sunny skies arrive Monday afternoon.
Temperatures won’t be moving too much, unfortunately.
“It will be cold today,” Ansuini said, with highs expected in the lower 20s.
Later Monday, winds will be picking up out of the west, with speeds of 15 to 25 mph creating a wind chill between zero and 10, he said.
Clear skies will give way to clouds Monday night, as the next weather system approaches, Ansuini said. Low temperatures will be between 5 and 10.
