JAMESTOWN – A High pressure ridge has taken shape across the Northeast and that is leading to nice and dry weather for today. However, rain returns late in the day on Friday and lingers through the early weekend.
Nice blue sky with some passing clouds at times will take is through the afternoon today with temperatures regaining from the upper 70’s near the imitate Lake Erie waterfront to the upper 80’s well inland. It will feel a little bit warmer and sticker when you add the humidity into play.
Tonight will be another quiet and muggy night with temps only sliding back into the lower to mid 60’s for most areas around the Southern Tier.
Most of the day on Friday will be dry with warm temperatures and quite uncomfortable humidity. Scattered showers and storms will develop very late in the day by the evening hours and last through the overnight.
While we are not expecting any organized risk of severe weather Friday night, a couple storms do have the potential to contain some brief gusty winds.
A few showers and storms will lapse into Saturday but the majority of the day will be dry. We cool off on Sunday and Monday before the 80’s return Tuesday and Wednesday with a chance for scattered showers and storms both days.
