Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western New York
National Weather Service Buffalo NY
733 AM EDT Thu Apr 19 2018

.DISCUSSION...
A large upper-level trough will pinwheel across New England while
keeping a supply of cool air in place across the region through
Friday. Meanwhile a wave will track just south of the Great Lakes
while merging with the upper-level trough Friday, producing periods
of snow showers and minimal accumulations through Friday. High
pressure will build across the region this weekend into early next
week finally brining drier weather and moderating temperatures.
