TODAY'S FORECAST: Snow, high near 35

The weekend forecast hasn't changed...expect lots of sunshine, with highs in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees (4 to 5 degrees Celsius), and this general temperature regime shouldn't change much as we move through next week.

Tonight: Snow, mainly before 10 p.m. The sun will rise at 6:52:01 a.m. Thursday and will set at 6:29:59 p.m. High near 36. Northeast wind 13 to 17 miles per hour becoming north in the afternoon. Low around 53. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent. 1-2 inches of snow possible.

When all's said and done, some spots of Western New York could see as much as 8 inches of fresh snow by week's end, weather service maps show. West wind 14 to 16 miles per hour. Cloudy, with a high near 32. Winds will reach 15 miles per hour during the day before dropping to around 13 during the night.

Then, a storm system rolls over us on Wednesday with the possibility of lake-enhanced snow into Thursday. Chance of precipitation is 30 percent. Even more fortunate, drier conditions are expected to return for Tuesday morning's commute.

Friday night - Mostly cloudy, with a low about 24. It will take a while for most roads to accumulate snow, but lightly used roads, turn lanes, shoulders, bridges and overpasses will collect first.

Saturday: Partly sunny, high near 39.

Sunday night - Mostly cloudy, with a low about 27.

From ice and snow to sunny skies and back again - it's that time of year when the weather can't make up it's mind.
