Clouds Hang Around Today, Winds Increase Through The Day Thursday

JAMESTOWN – Prepare for more socked-in cloud cover today and tomorrow with very limited chances for any sun peeks. Winds will be on the increase ahead of a strong Cold front on Thursday that will bring another chance of rain and snow showers to the region by the end of the week.

There may be a spotty shower or snow flurry this afternoon but the majority of the day will be rather cloudy and gloomy. With a low ceiling overhead, some areas will be contenting with some fog as well. Highs 35 to 42.

Partly to mostly tonight with some river valley fog by morning and rather quiet. Lows 28 to 34.

Tomorrow will be another near carbon-copy of today; more clouds than sunshine but a bit warmer; 41 to 48 forecast highs. The winds will start to pick up in the afternoon; south-southwest winds 15 to 25 MPH will gusts near 35 MPH at times.

The National Weather Service has issued a Lakeshore Flood Watch for Chautauqua County, going into effect at 11 p.m. Thursday night and running through 10 a.m. Friday morning.

With gusty southwest winds overnight near 50 MPH, Lake Erie water levels could rise and cause some flooding along the lakeshore, in combination with high wave action.

The official high temperature on Friday is going to occur early in the morning. As the Cold front sweeps through, temps will fall behind it as colder air filters in. The majority of the day will be spent in the 30’s. Winds will also gradually die down through the day but some gusts of 40 MPH are still possible early in the day.

Saturday will be the better weekend day with partial sunshine and highs in the lower 40s. There will be a chance for a couple rain and snow showers on Sunday with below average highs yet again into the mid to upper 30’s.

The Thanksgiving holiday traveling week is looking good to start both Monday and Tuesday with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 40’s each day.
