FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN NEW YORK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BUFFALO NY
520 AM EDT SUN MAY 29 2016

.DISCUSSION...

MID SUMMER CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN IN PLACE TODAY AS HIGH PRESSURE
ANCHORED OFF THE EAST COAST WILL CONTINUE TO PUMP NEAR RECORD WARMTH
AND HIGH HUMIDITY NORTHWARDS ACROSS OUR REGION. THIS ENVIRONMENT
WILL SUPPORT THE POTENTIAL FOR MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING AS A WEAK TROUGH CROSSES
THE REGION. A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL THEN CROSS THE AREA TONIGHT AND
BRING A RETURN TO SOMEWHAT COOLER AND LESS HUMID AIR EARLY NEXT WEEK.
