After some cooler weather throughout this week across Western New York, there will soon be a sharp increase in the temperature department.

Highs are expected to be in the mid-to-high 80’s this Friday and Saturday. Some areas could reach 90 degrees this weekend, plus the humidity will be very high, so it’s important to stay hydrated.

While there are thunderstorms possible for the region on Saturday, it won’t be until Sunday that we will see a big change and some potential worrisome weather conditions.

According to the National Weather Service, a cold front will move through Buffalo and Western New York on Sunday afternoon. This will cause a drop in temperature and the potential for severe weather.

In fact, it’s likely some of these thunderstorm on Sunday are strong to severe; which will bring heavy winds and other hail.

This is important to be aware of on Sunday, as more people will be out for events and running errands during the afternoon.

We haven’t had to deal with heavy thunderstorms for quite some time — really, since last September. This will be a return to that sort of weather. Make sure to not have your pets outside during a thunderstorm and to have your phone charged as much as possible, in case of the power going out.

The weather won’t be quite as hot during next week, so if you love the heat, Friday and Saturday will be for you.
