Don’t be alarmed. The sweaty palms and light-headedness you’re feeling may be spring fever.
It’s hard to remember what that feels like. But today might bring back memories, as temperatures could reach into the mid-60s in the eastern suburbs.
“We’re looking at highs right in the city alone in the mid- to upper-50s,” said Dan Kelly, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service station in Cheektowaga.
The mercury may hit 64 at the Buffalo-Niagara International Airport today.
Be sure to take advantage of the spring weather today. There is a cold front approaching, bringing with it a slight chance of a shower this evening, Kelly said. It’s also bringing colder temperatures, with highs Tuesday in the low to mid-40s.
It should be dry until Thursday, though, when there is a chance of rain, and a much better chance of rain Friday.
But after this winter, the bar may be pretty low for Western New York, and day time highs in the 40s may sound like spring.
The average temperature for March was 26.7, which is the eighth coldest March on record in Buffalo. We had 24.5 inches of snow last month, which ties for the ninth snowiest March.
The low temperature in March was minus 3 on March 4, which was shy of the all-time low for the month of minus 7 reached in 1984.
