Another warm-up brings spring-like Friday, wet weekend

What's left of the snowpack in Western New York should be eliminated by the end of the weekend.

The third warm-up in as many weeks is upon us.

Expect today's temperature to push into the upper 40s under mostly sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service. A south wind will help to keep temperatures above freezing — and close to 40 degrees — overnight Friday.

What's more, if you like the warmer temperatures, get this: Buffalo is pushing past what usually averages its coldest part on the calendar for another year.

Saturday will be even warmer with clouds early and highs in the upper 40s. Forecasters call for breezy southwest winds gusting as high as 31 mph with rain showers becoming likely in the afternoon.

Temperatures retreat somewhat overnight Saturday into the mid-30s with a chance for rain showers in the evening. It will stay breezy, forecasters said.

Sunday's high will be in the low 40s, but temperatures will drop back again heading into the new work week.

The weather service said snow is likely to return on Monday with highs in the low 30s and overnight lows Monday night back into the teens.
