JAMESTOWN – Lake effect rain will continue through the afternoon with temperatures well below average and struggling to reach the upper 40’s. However, a nice turn around is on the way for the weekend.
After morning peak wind gusts around 30 to 40 MPH, the winds will start to die down as we go throughout the afternoon.
However, the gusty winds in combination with the saturated ground soil have been causing issues in relation to uprooted trees, such as this tree that fell onto a house on Third Street near Lind Funeral Home.
With a north to northwest wind, the colder air dragging across the relevantly warmer waters of Lake Erie will produce some bands of scattered lake effect rain. Highs will range 39 on the highest hilltops to around 50 near the lakeshore with most areas staying in the lower to mid 40’s.
Rain showers will continue through the evening hours, tapering off throughout the overnight by morning. Lows 36 to 43.
Any rain showers come to an end by late morning on Friday, becoming partly sunny for the afternoon. Highs still below average but a tiny bit warmer; mid to upper 40’s.
The Jamestown Red Raider varsity football team plays the Orchard Park Quakers at home at Strider Field for Friday Night Lights. While the game will be dry, it will be quite chilly with temps around 39 at kickoff, down to 37 by the fourth quarter.
High pressure returns for the weekend, leading to partly to mostly sunny conditions both Saturday and Sunday. We have made a slight revision to the forecast by knocking the high temps for both days down by a degree or two. However, lower to mid 60’s is still slightly above average for this time of the year.
