FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN NEW YORK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BUFFALO NY
1033 AM EDT SUN AUG 28 2016

.DISCUSSION...
AS HIGH PRESSURE MOVES TO THE EAST OF THE REGION, WARM AND MORE HUMID
AIR WILL OVERSPREAD THE AREA. LOW PRESSURE ACROSS EASTERN CANADA
WILL DRAW A COLD FRONT OVER THE NORTHEASTERN STATES TODAY, AND THIS
WILL PRODUCE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS INTO THE EVENING, ESPECIALLY
ACROSS CENTRAL NEW YORK. THE NEXT ROUND OF FAIR WEATHER WILL THEN
MOVE IN FOR MONDAY AND TUESDAY WHEN HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN FROM THE
UPPER GREAT LAKES.
