After a very cold Thursday, readings really bounce back late week in advance of a tricky weekend storm. It becomes breezier into Friday. At this point, is looks as through rain showers will impact the region Friday and Saturday arriving after midnight, with showers becoming more likely during the day Friday, however most of them should be light.
Rainfall will increase Saturday night...at this point it appears the heaviest should remain just west and north of Western New York Saturday reducing our chances of flooding rainfall,
...However should the heaviest rain end up a bit father south, we could have some localized flood issues. As colder air starts to drain into the region by Sunday, leftover precipitation will wind down as a few mixed rain and snow showers later Sunday morning.
