Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western New York
National Weather Service Buffalo NY
433 AM EDT Fri May 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...
While a storm system along the New England coast will continue to
push away from the region today...a wealth of low level moisture
will persist in its wake. This will keep our skies shrouded under
plenty of clouds with a few spots even picking up a light shower or
two. As we head into the long Memorial Day weekend...weak high
pressure will provide most areas with fair weather on Saturday...
but conditions will deteriorate later Sunday into Monday when there
will be the likelihood for showers and thunderstorms.
