Mostly Dry This Afternoon, More Snow And Wind Returns Wednesday

JAMESTOWN – All of the snow has tapered off leading to mainly dry rest of the day. We’ll squeeze out one more dry day before another round of snow and gusty winds returns to the region mid week with the roller coaster of temperatures continuing through the week.

After picking up over four inches in spots last night and early this morning, all of the snow has ended across Western New York with mostly cloudy skies in its wake. Temperatures will not budge much from where they are now; lower to mid 30’s for most.

Winds will also remain breezy throughout the day, gusting to 35 MPH at times.

The cloud cover may break apart somewhat overnight but will be dry. Morning lows 21 to 27.

Besides for a 20 percent chance for a light rain or snow shower in the morning, Tuesday will be partly to mostly cloudy with a lighter wind. Highs 33 to 38.

Thanks to an upper-level trough digging into the northeast by the middle of the week, lake effect snow will setup once again off the eastern end of Lake Erie Tuesday night into Wednesday, likely tapering off for the later afternoon. The winds will also come up once again with that colder air, likely gusting to 40 MPH. Highs only in the mid 20’s.

There will be a small chance for a snow shower in the morning hours of Thursday but otherwise partial sunshine with highs in the mid 30’s.

Our attention will then turn towards Friday and the weekend weekend as another storm system will rise close to the region with a series of Cold fronts. The storm will be pulling in warm moist air from the Gulf of Mexico, bring temperatures near 50 on Friday with widespread rain.

As the first of multiple fronts sweeps through Saturday, official highs in the lower to mid 40’s will occur early in the morning, falling to the upper 20’s by the end of the day. With the colder air working in, precipitation will change from rain to snow through the day.

Snow showers will continue into Sunday with highs struggling to reach the 30-degree mark.
