FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN NEW YORK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BUFFALO NY
350 AM EST MON FEB 8 2016

.DISCUSSION...

OUR REGION WILL BE SANDWICHED BETWEEN TWO STORM SYSTEMS TODAY AND
TONIGHT...AND WHILE THESE FEATURES WILL EVENTUALLY GENERATE SOME
SNOW FOR US...IT WILL CERTAINLY NOT BE SIGNIFICANT. THE STORMS
WILL MERGE INTO A COMPLEX SYSTEM TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY...PRODUCING
MORE NUISANCE SNOW IN THE PROCESS. DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THIS
WEEK...ADDITIONAL SNOW SHOWERS WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY MUCH COLDER
AIR...INCLUDING SOME FRIGID ARCTIC AIR FOR AT LEAST PART OF THE
UPCOMING WEEKEND.
