The region tied a weather record – and not a pleasant one for this time of year – early Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service.
When the temperature dropped to 31 degrees at 6:12 a.m. at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, it tied a daily, low temperature record set in 1907, the weather service said.
The region is under a freeze warning through 10 a.m.
Western New York has been dealing with unseasonably cold temperatures of late.
And there was measurable snow at the airport on Saturday, the first time there was measurable snow in May here since 1989.
Major pattern change on the way. Temps will trend warmer each day right through the end of the week, as highs in the 40s today, quickly turn into the 60s for the latter portion of the week. Unfortunately, the likelihood for rain will also ramp up later Thursday and Friday. pic.twitter.com/2DPMyrA4ib
