National Weather Service Buffalo NY
433 PM EDT Sun Aug 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure will move off the the mid-Atlantic coast tonight.
Return flow developing between this surface high and the next
approaching low pressure system will build heat and humidity
on Tuesday. A strong cold front will cross the region late
Tuesday, and may be accompanied by strong to severe thunderstorms.
The work week will end with a touch of fall in the air as a
sprawling Canadian high pressure builds in cooler and drier air.
