First Defense: Becoming Mild And Windy On Sunday

JAMESTOWN – High pressure has built in across the Northeast which is leading to mostly sunny skies and with a southernly wind loft, that will begin to boost our temperatures through the weekend.

The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning for Chautauqua County, going into effect at  7 PM Saturday and running through 10 PM on Sunday. A storm system back to our west will be responsible for not only the gusty winds but some widespread rain throughout the day as well.

Some of the computer model guidance has been showing a brief period of sleet or freezing rain early on Sunday morning, mainly south and east of the Southern Tier. Any form of ice accumulation will be light in nature, ending by the late morning as warmer air is filtered into the system.

The winds will also be howling throughout the day. The in-house FutureScan model depicts wind gusts nearing 60 MPH early on Sunday, with the highest gusts near the Lake Erie Shoreline and the higher hills.

Temps return to the 30s for early next before another shot of mild air comes back towards the end of the week. However, I don’t think any warmup we see will last. Looking at past data, we’re likely not done quite yet with winter cold and snow…
