The rain will be gone, the temperatures will be in the 30s and you might even see some sunshine Christmas Day.
Those inland from the lakes probably will wake up to see what's left of the snow from earlier this month but along the lake shore, a lot of the snow pack will likely be gone.
"It won't feel very Christmassy, but the temps will be close," said Jim Mitchell, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Buffalo.
On Monday, the rain will return and the temperatures will rise into the low to mid 50s for a one-day warm up.
Tuesday and Wednesday, the weather will be more seasonable, with highs in the 30s.
Thursday, the temperatures will start dropping and there's a chance of some snow Thursday night into Friday.
"Nothing blockbuster," Mitchell said. "Just more of a winter pattern. We're used to snow around here. We can handle this."
