Saturday's low temperature ties a 60-year-old record

Winter weather is settling in.

The Buffalo-area's coldest temperature Saturday — 19 degrees at 7:59 a.m. — tied a 60-year-old record for the date, according to a National Weather Service meteorologist.

Saturday's tie of a record set in 1957 followed a new daily record set Friday as a new weather front arrived. The high temperature for the day — 29 degrees at 12:14 a.m. — was Buffalo's coldest high temperature on record for the date, said Steven Welch, a Weather Service meteorologist at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.

For Sunday's Bills game, temperatures should be in the 40s, but there is a 15 to 20 percent chance of precipitation, he said. The chance of rain or snow increases through the evening, and a few showers might still be around for the Monday morning commute, Welch said.
