'Arctic frontal boundary' to turn Buffalo Niagara into a snow globe Friday

It's not going to last long, but winter's back.

Friday morning commuters ran into brief, patchy episodes of moderate snow showers around the Buffalo Niagara region.

They are expected to continue off-and-on for several hours today as an Arctic frontal boundary pushes its way across the region, forecasters at the National Weather Service said.

Snow showers, enhanced by the lakes, will be brief but could put down an inch of snow or so today, according to the National Weather Service.

The blast of cold air will keep a feeling of winter around the region through much of the weekend.

Friday's high temperature isn't forecast to escape the mid 20s. With a breezy northwest wind, wind chills could drop toward 10 degrees and into the single digits by evening, forecasts show.

The average high is in the upper 30s.

Overnight lows are expected to drop into the teens.

The mercury is forecast to only rebound into the low 20s for a high Saturday before dipping toward 10 degrees overnight Saturday.

After northerly winds shift and become more southerly after midnight, temperatures will also rise by Sunday morning.

A mostly sunny day is forecast with a high near 40 degrees. Rain and snow are possible overnight Sunday as another storm system approaches.

Temperatures get back into the 50s early next week with a chance for rain Monday and ran likely by Tuesday, according to the weather service forecast.
