Are you ready for some warmth?

One more day.

After a stretch of significantly colder-than-normal temperatures in Buffalo, more seasonal temperatures are finally on the doorstep, according to the National Weather Service.

But first, another cool day is on tap Tuesday.

Light snow fell overnight leaving a little bit of a coating on lawns this chilly Tuesday morning. It was only 29 degrees at about 6:30 a.m.

It will warm up a bit today. The National Weather Service calls for partly sunny conditions with highs near 40 degrees on Tuesday. Overnight temperatures are forecast to dip into the upper 20s, but that will be the last time the mercury in Buffalo will dip below the melting point for nearly a week, forecasts show.

The thermometer will finally turn upward starting Wednesday, but it will also become wetter, weather service forecasts show.

Moisture associated with a storm system will bring a chance of afternoon showers Wednesday. A southwest flow will allow temperatures to reach into the upper 40s, forecasters said.

Showers remain possible Wednesday night with overnight lows near 40 degrees, forecasts show.

There's a 90 percent chance for showers on Thursday. It'll be breezy, forecasters said. Daytime highs are forecast in the mid 50s.

For the Buffalo Bisons' 2:05 p.m. home opener, forecasts show there's a 30 to 40 percent chance for rain. Highs in the mid 50s are expected with southwest winds gusting over 30 mph, the weather service said.

Chances for showers stay in the forecast on Friday, the weather service said. Highs near 60 degrees are forecast.

The average daily high temperature this week in Buffalo is in the mid 50s.

The weekend looks okay too, with temperatures near 60 degrees Saturday and the low 50s on Sunday, but the warming period won't last.

The region is expected to slip back to below-normal conditions next week.

The federal Climate Prediction Center calls for cooler than average conditions across much of the northern tier of the United States over the 8 to 14 day time frame.

After a brief warmup at the end of this week, there will be a turn back to colder weather next week, forecasts show. (Climate Prediction Center)
