Warm, breezy Black Friday; another cold front turns weekend wet, chilly

Here's what the National Weather Service says to expect for the first official weekend of the holiday season:

Today

Black Friday shoppers will score an unseasonably warm day but should hang on tightly to their bags.

It'll be windy.

Southwest winds could gust over 30 mph during the early afternoon.

Skies will be cloudy at first but clear up and bring an otherwise sunny day.

Temperatures are expected to reach 50 degrees.

Tonight

Chances of showers overnight with breezy conditions and south winds gusting as high as 32 mph. Lows in the low 40s.

Saturday

A 60 percent chance of showers in the morning. Mostly cloudy otherwise.

It expected to stay breezy. Daytime highs are forecast to reach the high 40s.

Saturday Night

Chances for rain in the late evening, then chances for rain and show showers after midnight and chances for snow showers after about 2 a.m. behind a second cold front.

"Temperatures aloft will gradually fall behind the front, perhaps just cold enough for some light lake-effect rain or snow showers by Saturday evening," the weather service reported. "Accumulating snows may not occur until later Saturday night into Sunday."

Overnight low about 31 degrees.

Sunday

Chances for show showers in the morning. It'll be much cooler. Daytime highs in the mid 30s are forecast.

Forecasters said total snow totals are likely to be light.

"The best chances for minor accumulations will be in...areas of the Chautauqua ridge," the weather service stated.

Forecaster said even though accumulations are expected to be on the lighter side, it could still make some roadways greasy for travel.
