Icy start to morning, but rest of the week looks milder

Watch out for black ice this morning.

All that rain and melting snow yesterday froze up overnight. There was also a brief period of freezing rain and freezing drizzle Sunday evening that's making sidewalks and roads slippery.

"We have some slick spots out there, especially on roads that aren't treated," said National Weather Service meteorologist Steve Welch.

High pressure is forecast to build into the Buffalo Niagara region today and that's what will keep temperatures chilly as cold air rushes in behind it. Expect highs in the upper 20s.

While it will be chilly, we'll see the sun today. It'll be cold overnight though with only partly cloudy skies forecast. Lows are expected near 10 degrees, the weather service said.

By Tuesday, there will be more sunshine, but forecasters expected it will be a little bit warmer with highs in the low 30s.

Wednesday, Valentine's Day, looks to bring an even bigger jump – near 50 degrees – with mostly sunny skies forecast, the weather service projects.

Showers are expected to return to the picture by Thursday, but it'll still be warm ahead of another cold front.

Daytime highs Thursday could flirt with 50 degrees, forecasters said.

Chances for rain and snow showers then return to the forecast by Friday.
