Brief reprieve from winter's bite

Niagara Gazette — Saturday's weather left little to be desired, especially in the middle of January in Western New York.

With temperatures climbing throughout the morning and early afternoon, Saturday reached a balmy 58 degrees, measured at 2 p.m. at the Niagara Falls International Airport. It was barely warm enough to set a new record at the airport, according to The Weather Channel's daily averages report.

According to the channel's weather.com website, the warmest recorded temperature for Jan. 12 was 57 degrees set in 2005.

That same year, Jan. 13's temperature also set a record, according to the website. It was measured at 65 degrees that day, a feat which won't be repeated in 2013. Though today's temperature is expected to be in the mid to upper 50s, according to Weather Observer Neil Seaman at the Niagara Falls International Airport, rain showers are expected to be occurring throughout the day, with a possibility of thunderstorms developing.

After that, he said, expect the weather to return to normal, with highs hovering around the freezing mark Monday, the normal high for Niagara Falls in the middle of January.

"(Today), the forecast is calling for rain showers for a good part of the day," Seaman said. "It'll be a little breezy. (Tonight), we're back to seasonal temperatures, as Monday's high will be about 32 degrees."

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
