JAMESTOWN – We are starting off the new month rather nicely with lots of sunshine and average temperatures. However, the humidity will be rising as well as the thunderstorm chances throughout the week.
A fantastic afternoon is on tap for the region. Mostly sunny skies with temps in the mid 70’s to near 80 in spots with a nice light wind. The humidity is also staying down throughout the day so it will feel nice and comfortable.
A system in the upper Great Lakes will be moving towards the region and with that, bringing that chance for a couple showers and or storms late tonight after midnight. The majority of the evening will be dry with partly to mostly cloudy skies and temps in the lower to mid 60’s.
As we go throughout the week, the Jet Stream will begin to favor a more warmer pattern aloft with humid, tropical-like air streaming north from the Gulf of Mexico. This will equate out to very muggy and warm conditions across Western New York by the middle of the week.
With the humidity spiking to near oppressive levels, that could be just enough fuel to create scattered popup showers and storms through the afternoon and early evening from Tuesday until Thursday. Not a single one of those days will be a washout with lots of sun in between.
There is a chance of a shower or a storm near fireworks time Thursday night but we’re remaking hopeful that we can clear out the rain beforehand and everything will go off just as planned.
