FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN NEW YORK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BUFFALO NY
500 AM EST MON JAN 26 2015

.DISCUSSION...

LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE THROUGH THE OHIO VALLEY AND MID ATLANTIC
TODAY AND SPREAD A STEADY LIGHT SNOW INTO MUCH OF THE REGION EXCEPT
THE NORTH COUNTRY. THIS WILL PRODUCE ACCUMULATIONS IN MOST AREAS
BEFORE TAPERING OFF TO SCATTERED SNOW SHOWERS EARLY TUESDAY. A
STRONG LOW ALONG THE EAST COAST MAY PRODUCE SOME LIGHT SNOW EAST OF
LAKE ONTARIO TUESDAY AND TUESDAY NIGHT BUT WILL OTHERWISE MISS OUR
REGION. HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING A BRIEF BREAK ON WEDNESDAY BEFORE
ANOTHER LOW BRINGS A WIDESPREAD SNOW ON THURSDAY.
