JAMESTOWN – Widespread rain has been moving through the region today out ahead of a Cold front. The rain will become more scattered in nature through the afternoon with an improving day coming up on Wednesday.
As the front moves through Western New York this afternoon, the widespread rain will taper from west to east, becoming more of the scattered-type for the late afternoon. Highs will only manage the lower to mid 50’s today inland, with some spots maybe getting to near 60 by the lakeshore.
Scattered showers will continue tonight with mostly cloudy intervals. With the wind shifting more west-southwest, that could be enough to trigger a response from Lake Erie and setup a few bands of lake effect rain showers overnight.
Based on current guidance, the winds should keep these bands from meandering too far south into the Southern Tier and keep them mainly around Buffalo and points north and east. Morning lows 38 to 44.
There could be a morning shower or two on Wednesday, otherwise the day becomes partly to mostly sunny. However, with the winds still favoring a cooler direction, that won’t help us too much in the temperature department; maybe lower to mis 50’s.
It will also become become a bit breezy once again with wind gusts possibly near 40 MPH at times.
We retain the chance for a few spot showers both Thursday and Friday however, both days will be mainly dry with partial sunshine and highs in the mid to upper 50’s.
