JAMESTOWN – The work week ends on a good note with a good amount of sunshine through the afternoon. However, the Labor Day weekend will be questionable at times with a couple opportunities for showers.
A few clouds will be mixing in with the sun throughout the afternoon today. Highs will range 69 to 76 with health southwest breeze gusting to near 30 MPH at times. Clouds should part overnight tonight, leading to a partly to mainly clear sky. Morning lows 47 in some of the valleys to 58 near the Lake Erie Shoreline.
Saturday will clearly be the better of the two days this holiday weekend. Partly to mostly sunny, highs upper 60’s to lower 70’s.
A system scooting by will bring a chance for showers Saturday night into Sunday. The rain on Sunday is looking to be more widespread in nature. Guidance suggests some of the Sunday rain could have some pockets of moderate rain with models showing around a quarter to half inch worth of rainfall.
There will be the chance for a few lingering showers through the day on Monday but we stress, the day will not be a wash. The day will be rather useable with pockets of dry time in between with maybe some partial clearing of the cloud deck. Any rain should come to an end by fireworks time.
We’ll squeeze out an 80 on Tuesday before temperatures fall back below average once again Wednesday and Thursday with a limited chance for a shower Wednesday afternoon.
