JAMESTOWN – The lake effect snow machine has shut down for now thanks to an area of High pressure building into the northeast. Another system passing close the region will bring another chance for rain and snow showers with the wind picking up once again over the weekend.
Clouds will continue to be on the increase today but the suns will peak out from time to time. Highs 25 to 33 with a south wind 10 to 15 MPH.
Tonight will start partly to mostly cloudy, becoming mainly clear overnight. The winds will start to tick up a bit bit with gusts possibly near 35 MPH at times. Morning lows 22 to 31.
With a little bit more in the way of sunshine, most of the area should make it into the lower 40’s by the afternoon.
A deep storm system will likely pass close the region on Saturday, bringing another influx of moisture into the region. Widespread rain will likely be the story throughout the day on Saturday with current model guidance suggesting around a half to three quarters of an inch of rainfall across the Southern Tier.
Colder air will attach itself to the back of the storm system as it moves out on Sunday. However that colder air moving over the relatively warmer waters of Lake Erie, some lake effect snow is possible with a gusty breeze.
Lake snow will likely taper off on Monday , leading to mostly cloudy skies in the afternoon.
Another shot of colder air looks to return by mid next week with more wind and possibly more lake effect.
