JAMESTOWN – The sunshine is back in full force today but temps will not rebound back to reflect all that sunshine. However, some light is at the end of the tunnel as we heads towards the end of the workweek.
Even though tonight will be another clear, starlit sky, a south wind will redevelop once again and that will keep us from dropping off too much by tomorrow morning.
Wednesday is looking nearly the same; dry with loads of sun smiling down on you albeit much warmer. Most areas should make it into the lower 50s by Wednesday afternoon.
Temperatures will continue to climb through the 50s throughout the remainder of the week, making it feel much like the season we are in.
Rain will return to the region Thursday through Saturday as a weather system moves through the area. Thursday’s rain coverage will be on again, off again while more widespread rain will be the story on Friday.
We’re still a little too far out to get an idea on overall rain totals using the better quality high resolution data but we should get that data in within he next couple of days.
While there will be a limited chance for snow snow showers on Sunday, we’re not expecting anything in the way of accumulation at this time.
Storm Spotter Training: The National Weather Service in Buffalo will be conducting their first ever online training class on Tuesday, May 2 at 7:00 PM. For the online training, you do need to preregister as spots for the online are limited. You can register your spot a www.weather.gov/buf/skywarn
Attendees will learn many topics to becoming a trained storm spotter, such as identifying storm structure, basic meteorology relating to severe convection (severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, etc), severe weather safety, and proper reporting techniques.
I encourage everyone to attend a training session; we are in desperate need of more trained spotters. What many people may not know is that spotters actually contribute to the warning process. Remember, Doppler radar looks above the ground; it’s only spotters who see what is happening down at the ground.
