JAMESTOWN – After a rather murky Monday, a Warm front will push through the region tomorrow, spiking temperatures well above average and near record territory for this time of the year. A fall pattern will return late this week with the potential for the first frost this weekend.
Most areas today will see limited sunshine with a few spotty showers. The clouds are going to win out the majority of the day unfortunately. Highs will be in the middle to upper 60’s inland, going to the mid 70’s near the Lake Erie Shoreline.
That cloud cover sticks around for the overnight hours, proving for rather mild and muggy sleeping conditions. Mornings lows 60 to 68.
As the Warm front moves through, temperatures will soar into the lower to mid 80’s by the afternoon. The record high for the city of Jamestown is 81, set back in 1988. We do feel confident in either tying or breaking that record. With a high amount of humidity in the air, there will be the chance for a few spotty showers and storms mainly inland away from the lakeshore.
Showers and storms will linger and become a bit more numerous into Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the lower to mid 70’s
The wind pattern aloft will shift to allow more cooler air to infiltrate the area by the weekend. Highs will drop into the 60’s on Friday, down into the mid to upper 50’s for both Saturday and Sunday.
We are projecting mornings lows in the lower to 30’s on Saturday, which could result in our first frost of the season. We are statistically running about a week or so behind the average date of the first frost and we may finally end that streak come this weekend.
