This morning's frigid temperatures won't stick around

Parts of Western New York woke up Thursday morning to below-zero temperatures.

The thermometer read minus-2 in Pendleton, minus-1 in Lockport, 0 in Lancaster and only 2 degrees in Orchard Park just after 7 a.m.

Today's high temperatures will reach the low 20s, but things will warm up for Friday and the weekend. That's when highs will hit the low- to mid-40s, according to the National Weather Service in Cheektowaga.

Friday morning's commute could be a pretty slick one, with a mix of precipitation, including freezing rain, expected from about 7 to 9 a.m.

"It's going to come in with a mixture," said meteorologist Aaron Reynolds.

A warm front will bring some milder air to the region, but temperatures will cool off again early next week, Reynolds said.
