FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN NEW YORK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BUFFALO NY
511 AM EST FRI DEC 19 2014

.DISCUSSION...

LOW LEVEL MOISTURE AND A SURFACE TROUGH ACROSS THE REGION WILL
PRODUCE AREAS OF FREEZING DRIZZLE AND SNOW FLURRIES EARLY THIS
MORNING GRADUALLY TAPERING OFF AS HIGH PRESSURE SLOWLY BUILDS ACROSS
THE REGION TODAY INTO SATURDAY. THE HIGH WILL EVENTUALLY BRING
DRYING CONDITIONS WITH NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES THIS WEEKEND. A
STORM SYSTEM DEVELOPING OVER THE GREAT LAKES CONTINUES TO LOOK
POSSIBLE AROUND THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY WHICH COULD BRING GUSTY WINDS
AND RAIN CHANGING TO SNOW.
