Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western New York
National Weather Service Buffalo NY
433 PM EDT Thu Mar 30 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Low pressure over Illinois will move slowly south of the Great Lakes
through Friday night before moving off the east coast on Saturday.
This will bring periods of soaking rain to much of the region
through Saturday morning, with snow and mixed precipitation across
the North Country. Mainly dry weather will return later Saturday and
Sunday as high pressure builds into the eastern Great Lakes.
