Hoops fans in downtown Buffalo for today’s NCAA games better bundle up a bit. It’s not going to be quite springlike this first day of spring.

It’s 33 degrees now and a few flurries have been falling around downtown Buffalo this morning. You’ve probably noticed that it’s a bit on the windy side out there too.

That’s what you should expect for much of the day, said Dan Kelly, meteorologist with the National Weather Service’s Buffalo office.

There is a wind advisory in effect through 5 p.m. Winds of about 20 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40 are expected. The winds will die down some as the evening comes. The winds will make it feel like it’s in the 20s during the day and in the teens at night.

This afternoon and evening, the forecast is calling for a mixture of light snow and light rain. Kelly said not to expect much if any accumulation of snow. “Just a dusting, if that downtown,” he said.

South of Buffalo today, Kelly said there’s a potential for some snow accumulation, about one or two inches.
