Another streak of warm weather forecast this week

It's not going to be the upper 80s and 90s of Buffalo's unusually hot September, but the first 10 days of October look to bring more above-normal temperatures, forecasts show.

There will be lots of sunshine too.

Starting Monday, the National Weather Service forecast calls for days in the mid to upper 70s through at least Thursday, including 78 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday.

It forecasts a dip into the 60s Friday and Saturday with a return to the 70s for Sunday.

AccuWeather, which projects even further into the future, shows that the above-average warmth will continue into the following week with 72 degrees on Columbus Day.

If the forecast holds, the average high temperature for the first 10 days of October would be 70.4 degrees. That would be the fifth warmest 10-day start to October since World War II.

The average high temperature in Buffalo for the first third of October ranges from 61-65 degrees.
