Saturday’s low of 34 degrees shortly before 5:30 a.m. fell shy of the record of 33 degrees set in 1967.
But after the late-week chillout, the region will warm considerably, according to Jim Mitchell, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Buffalo.
Sunday will be sunny and relatively dry, with the high reaching 70 degrees or higher, Mitchell said.
However, a warm front moving into the region late Sunday, Mitchell said, will set the “summertime-type, humid pattern” for the remainder of the week, with daily highs ranging from the upper 70s to mid 80s and lows in the low to mid 60s. Look for the possibility of thunderstorms, as well.
