Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western New York
National Weather Service Buffalo NY
133 PM EDT Fri Apr 20 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Cool but largely dry weather will prevail this afternoon as low
pressure exits across the Canadian Maritimes...with just a few
flurries possible across the eastern Finger Lakes and North Country.
Expansive high pressure will then build across the region this
weekend...ushering in a welcome period of fair dry weather and
day to day warming that will last through early next week...when
temperatures will finally climb back to much more typical springtime
levels.
