It might not have felt like it this morning when the mercury dropped to a meager 1 degree – but it’s going to start warming up today.
The 1 degree mark recorded this morning marked the coldest temperature of the month so far, said National Weather Service meteorologist Dan Kelly.
Throughout the day, the temperatures will climb to about 20 degrees. The Buffalo area may get up to an inch of snow in the afternoon and likely another inch over night.
Over the weekend, it will get up into the mid-20s. Monday may start with a little bit of snow, but that will turn into rain as the temperatures rise up into about 40, Kelly said.
“Tuesday might actually be low to mid-50s,” Kelly said. There may be some rain Tuesday as well.
But that will likely be the end of the warm speel as temperatures start dropping again on Wednesday when the rain will turn over to snow.
