A little band of snow is drifting through our region this morning.

Between 8 a.m. and about 9:30 a.m. the system dropped 1.3 inches of snow at the Buffalo-Niagara International Airport, where the National Weather Service’s Buffalo office is located. That same band stretched to about Niagara Falls.

As the band dissipates, it is expected to drift toward downtown but the snow won’t be heavy.

“Downtown Buffalo may see a couple tenths of an inch,” meteorologist Dan Kelly said.

While the snow won’t be much to contend with, it will be cold. Today’s high is 22, and we already hit that overnight. It was about 15 degrees just before 10 a.m. today.

Temperatures will rise over the next couple of days, with highs in the mid 40s Thursday and close to 50 by Friday. But don’t plan on any picnics yet. Rain is headed into the region Thursday night into Friday.
