FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN NEW YORK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BUFFALO NY
508 AM EDT SUN AUG 17 2014

.DISCUSSION...

HIGH PRESSURE OVER NORTHERN ONTARIO WILL GRADUALLY SETTLE ACROSS THE
LOWER GREAT LAKES. THIS WILL PROVIDE OUR REGION WITH AT LEAST TWO
DAYS OF DRY FAIR WEATHER...ALTHOUGH TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN ON THE
COOL SIDE OF NORMAL. AS TEMPERATURES CLIMB TO ABOVE NORMAL LEVELS
LATER IN THE WEEK...OUR CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL
INCREASE AS WELL.
