Lake Effect Snow Possible For WNY Next Weekend?
Overall, it's been a pretty okay October, at least for temperatures. It could go down as the warmest October on record for Buffalo, but it was a very wet October to say the least.
We will continue that wet trend on Friday and Saturday, even into early Sunday before things dry out, according to WIVB Weather.
However, there's cooler air that will work its way into Western New York midweek next week, and that will maybe give us the first few flakes of the season, even the chance for accumulating snow in the southern tier.
That's not all, though.
Mike Cejka of WIVB says that the core of this colder air will arrive next weekend, which could even give us snow in the Buffalo metro and even, lake effect...
"The core of this colder air will arrive, not this weekend, but the following weekend. At which time, we may even have some snow in the metro and maybe even some lake effect?" said Cejka.
Cejka says it's still a long way out, so this isn't a definitive forecast, but the potential is at least there to mention it as we get into that cooler air next week and next weekend.
Next week is November. I've lived in Buffalo my entire life, and November is usually when we get our first accumulating snow, so while this could be our first snow of the season, we really shouldn't be overly surprised. Early-to-mid November is typically when the first snow arrives for us.
It doesn't hurt to keep the scrapper in the car, just in case.
