Weekend weather is projected

The National Weather Service (NWS) at Buffalo has issued its forecast for dry weather returning over the weekend, but tomorrow’s weather preview has dropped a Marginal Risk of severe thunderstorms which currently is in conflict with two other NWS sources.

The current Buffalo forecast center projections, issued at 6:01AM today are shown on the left, without the Marginal Risk alert for tomorrow for Allegany County, which had been forecast yesterday.

The graphic on the left, posted at 5:13AM today by NWS at Binghamton, shows potential for severe weather in parts of Allegany County (to the left of the outlined area), along with all of Steuben north and east on Friday, which also reflects the forecast from the NWS Storm Prediction Center as of this writing.

Updating forecasts from the Buffalo forecast office are available at www.weather.gov/buf, www.weather.gov/bgm for Steuben and counties to the east, and www.weather.gov/ctp for adjoining Pennsylvania counties.

Local weather forecasts for specific areas are accessible through the Search feature in the upper left corner of most NWS pages, with Hourly Weather Forecasts, which project event timing throughout the day, found on the lower right side of local pages.
