Goodbye Winter!

March 20, 2017 - 11:24 am

Buffalo, NY (WBEN) - Spring arrived Monday at 6:28am.  But it doesn't mean daffodils and tulips from now on.  7 First Alert Meteorologist Andy Parker says we still have a little Winter to go.  40's early this week.  A setback Wednesday when the temperature dips into the teens and 20's.  Then back to the 50's with rain by the weekend. 

We had a fairly mild Winter according to Bob Hamilton at the National Weather Service in Buffalo. "Last year was really unusual.  A phenomenally mild Winter followed by a mild Spring". This year, Hamilton describes it as a "typically, not phenomenally, mild Winter.  The Buffalo Metro area saw snowfall at least a foot below normal, and temperatuers above normal".

Still to come: Spring snow.  Hamilton says the Buffalo area can get 6 to 8 inch snow storms thru the first half of April. "It will be another month before the snow is gone for good".

By the way, it's now 92 days until Summer.
