After a quiet and pleasant weekend, the weather turns busy once again for the beginning of the work week. Your morning commute looks quiet with partly cloudy skies. Clouds continue to increase throughout the morning with temperatures quickly warming up into the mid 70s. A line of thunderstorms has already formed near Buffalo at 5AM and continues to push eastward this morning, approaching CNY by 11AM.

It is hard to believe that we have yet to officially hit 90 degrees this summer. Many areas yesterday made it to 90 degrees or even into the low 90s but officially at Griffiss Park, the temperature reached 89 degrees. It will be very warm and humid once again today but the chance of hitting 90 degrees is very slim due to an approaching cold front.
