Snowflakes could fly in parts of Western New York Sunday, accompanied by a freeze watch in Wyoming, Cattaraugus and Allegany counties, according to the National Weather Service.
The region will see scattered showers – possibly mixing with wet snow in the Southern Tier. However, no accumulation of snow is expected, except for on the highest hilltops. Temperatures in the Southern Tier could sink to as low as 30 degrees Sunday and Monday, which could kill vegetation.
In Buffalo, temperatures will fall to 36 degrees Sunday – not cold enough to break the local record of 32 degrees. Monday will be cooler than average, in the mid-50s.
Sunday will be the coldest day of the week. But by Friday and next Saturday, temperatures are expected to be back in the high 60s and lower 70s.
