JAMESTOWN – High pressure over the northeast is providing the region with great weather this afternoon. Rain returns though the day on Saturday with the chance a couple storms could be punchy.
Lots of sun through the afternoon today with highs 67 to 75 with a south wind.
The Jamestown High School Red Raider variety football team plays the Clarance Red Devils tonight in Buffalo for Friday Night Lights. Mostly sunny early with clouds thickening during the game. Temperatures will be near 72 by kickoff, to 70 by the fourth quarter.
Partly to mostly cloudy skies early tonight with showers and thunderstorms developing late with an approaching Cold front. It won’t be as chilly as previous nights with morning lows 58 to 67.
There is a low-end Marginal Risk (level 1/5) defined by the Storm Prediction Center for all of Western NY and Northwest PA for Saturday. A couple storms could contain some brief gusty winds with the best chance for rain in the morning and early afternoon. There still could be a few storms through the afternoon in popcorn nature, otherwise partly sunny with highs 73 to 79.
Sunday will be the better of the two weekend days with partial sunshine and highs near 70.
Things are also looking good for the Bills/Patriots game at New Era Field in Orchard Park Sunday afternoon. 65 at kickoff, warming up to 68 by the end of the game with a good supply of sunshine.
Next week starts warmer than average with highs in the upper 70’s. We do have a good shot of either tying or breaking the record high for October 1st, which is 81 degrees, set back in 1988.
Later in the week, the upper air pattern will favor cooler air working into the region, bringing a fall-like and seasonal feel back to the air once again.
