There are some snow showers in the morning that will bring another quick dusting down to most of the lower elevations. Bay trees and hills are under a winter weather advisory until noon today when they could pick up another 1-4 inches of snow.
The Steelers vs. Bills game has been postponed to Monday at 4:30 PM due to the ongoing snowstorm in Buffalo. If you’re heading there, the weather is looking a little more tolerable than today’s forecast. The game time forecast is still very cold with temperatures in the upper teens but winds will be breezy 10-20 mph so wind chills will be in the low singles. There’s still a chance of snow, but it doesn’t look heavy. A few extra inches can accumulate during the game.
It’s best to travel tomorrow right before the game since the winter storm will have the biggest impact today through tomorrow morning. Make sure you’re extra prepared with plenty of layers and warm if you’re visiting Buffalo tomorrow!
This huge blast of Arctic air won’t leave us for at least a week!
This means our temperatures will remain below freezing until the following Monday. Morning lows will fall into the teens and single digits. The wind chills will be single and negative on each of those mornings.
The only hope for warmth is the little sunlight we receive on certain days.
There are some snow chances to watch out for Tuesday and toward the end of the week.
Whatever snow falls between now and next Monday will not melt due to these cold temperatures.
