Buffalo's temperature at midnight was a sultry 66 degrees and the mercury remained in the mid 60s at dawn.
An approaching cold front, however, will cross through the area later this morning bringing some brief showers with it.
Southwest winds ahead of the front could gust up to 30 mph, according to National Weather Service forecasts.
By late morning, winds will start to shift and will then come out of the northwest behind the cold front.
Temperatures will drop into the 50s this afternoon before plummeting after sunset, the forecast shows.
By early Friday morning, northerly winds will drop the thermometer even further -- into the upper 30s, according to the forecast.
