JAMESTOWN – After some drip drops today, a storm passing close to the region will be the focal point for some messy precipitation through Saturday before some limited light lake effect sets up for the second half of the weekend into early next week.
Light rain showers have been story though the morning and those will continue in pockets through the afternoon. Some patchy fog is also possible with a low celling overhead. Highs today will top out around 40 to 46 with a light wind.
This evening may start dry but the potential does exist for a couple more light showers. Rain will pick up and become a bit more widespread by the morning hours as a storm system squeaks by just to our south. Some patchy fog is also possible in the river valley areas. Morning lows 36 to 42.
As the storm system moves close to us, it will also drag a Cold front through the region, bringing in colder air. Highs tomorrow will occur early in the day; 37 to 44, falling to 29 to 32 by the afternoon as the front sweeps through.
Precip will start as rain early in the day on Saturday, changing to a wintry mix of rain and snow, maybe some sleet, for a brief period of time, before finally changing over to all snow for the later afternoon.
Widespread snow will taper off later Saturday night with some pockets of light lake effect snow through the day Sunday though Tuesday with highs in the upper 20’s to lower 30’s.
Projected snowfall totals will not be anything major. Possibly around 3 to 4 inches on the hills, 2 to 4 along the lower elevations with an inch or so elsewhere.
Temps return to the upper 30’s by late next week with some partial sunshine on Thursday.
