About two weeks into the start of the season, spring’s warm-up arrives today.
The high temperature is forecast to hover around 50 degrees, which is right where it should be for this time of year, said James Mitchell, a National Weather Service meteorologist at Buffalo Niagara International Airport.
“It will be mostly sunny with clear skies and light winds,” Mitchell added.
That is a far cry from earlier in the week, when the high temperature barely inched above 32 degrees, with trace amounts of snow and hail peppering the region.
Temperatures are forecast to be a bit above average early next week, with highs in the mid-50s forecast for Monday and Tuesday.
Sunday’s high is expected to reach 48 degrees, with a chance of showers and gusty winds.
