We're just going to come out and say it: There's snow in the forecast.

The National Weather Service in Buffalo is forecasting snow showers beginning Friday evening over the Southtowns and the higher terrain of the Southern Tier and hitting the Buffalo area sometime overnight into Saturday, said meteorologist Liz Jurkowski.
The snow showers are expected to continue into the morning.
"Yeah," Jurkowski said. "It's going to snow."
There won't be a lot of snow, at least.
"Less than half an inch," Jurkowski said.
And it likely won't stick around, she added.
However, if it's snowing, you know that means it'll be cold. Expect temperatures in the upper 20s to lower 30s in the Buffalo area and down to even the mid-20s for areas south of Buffalo.
One bit of good news: the snow and frigid temperatures should be gone by Sunday, which is Mother's Day. (You all remembered that, right?)
There's a slight chance of rain showers Sunday but temperatures should be up to the mid to upper 40s, Jurkowski said.
