Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western New York
National Weather Service Buffalo NY
733 AM EDT Sun Jul 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Through Monday...low pressure will slowly track east along a nearly
stationary frontal boundary draped across our region...and this will
set the stage for periodic showers and thunderstorms. Some of these
could produce locally heavy rainfall...with a few of the storms also
possibly becoming strong to severe across western New York this
afternoon and evening. Following the passage of this system...Canadian
high pressure will then build across our region Tuesday...ushering
in a return to mainly dry and cooler weather along with much more
comfortable humidity levels.
