Weather forecast: Quiet today, snow tomorrow

We’ll enjoy a mix of clouds and sunshine today with highs into the middle 30s. Temperatures above freezing are going to be a rare treat for us given the forecast for the rest of the week.

An area of low pressure to our south will work eastward late Monday night. By Tuesday morning, a swath of light snow is expected to develop across all of Western New York. Expect snow to fall through the day tapering from west to east by evening as the system pulls away. The steadiest snow will fall south of the Thruway, but this more northward track could produce a few inches even in town. Definitely not a snowstorm, but perhaps enough to turn everything white again.
