NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BUFFALO NY
517 AM EST THU DEC 25 2014

.DISCUSSION...

STRONG WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO AFFECT MUCH OF WESTERN AND
NORTH-CENTRAL NEW YORK TODAY IN THE WAKE OF STRONG COLD FRONTAL
PASSAGE. WINDS WILL GRADUALLY DIMINISH LATER TODAY EVEN AS
TEMPERATURES FALL AS COLDER AIR FILTERS INTO THE REGION WITH ANY
LINGERING LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS MIXING WITH OR CHANGING OVER TO SNOW.
ANY REMAINING PRECIPITATION SHOULD END TONIGHT AS HIGH PRESSURE
MOVES ACROSS THE REGION WITH SEASONABLY MILD TEMPERATURES FOR THE
FIRST HALF OF THE COMING WEEKEND. A WEAKER SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO
SWING ANOTHER COLD FRONT ACROSS THE LOWER GREAT LAKES THIS
WEEKEND...BRINGING A RETURN TO MORE WINTER-LIKE TEMPERATURES FOR
NEXT WEEK.
