FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN NEW YORK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BUFFALO NY
424 AM EDT SAT MAY 28 2016

.DISCUSSION...

MID SUMMER CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH SUNDAY...AS HIGH
PRESSURE ANCHORED OFF THE EAST COAST WILL CONTINUE TO PUMP NEAR
RECORD WARMTH AND MODERATELY HIGH HUMIDITY NORTHWARDS ACROSS OUR
REGION. THIS ENVIRONMENT WILL BECOME INCREASINGLY FAVORABLE FOR SOME
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...ESPECIALLY ON SUNDAY. IT WILL THEN
BECOME MORE COMFORTABLE IN THE WAKE OF A COLD FRONT INTO THE MIDDLE
OF THE NEW WORK WEEK.
