JAMESTOWN – The weather will cooperate this afternoon for any outdoor plans or activities this afternoon. A few rain and snow showers will return to the region on Tuesday before a more impactful storm will come our way later this week.
Lots of sunshine will take us through this afternoon with above average temperatures. Highs 40 to 47 with spots near the Lake Erie shoreline possibly reaching the lower 50’s.
A boundary down to our south will the focal point for some rain showers overnight tonight, that could mix with some wet snow showers or sleet by the morning. Lows 36 to 43.
Any rain showers early on Tuesday will then change over to a plain wintry mix before coming to an end later in the day with falling temperatures as the wind shrifts north-northwest. Early morning highs 38 to 46, dropping to 33 to 37 by the afternoon.
We will sneak in another dry day on Wednesday however, with more clouds around than sun. Highs in the lower 30’s.
We are keeping our eyes on another storm system that will likely impact the east coast towards the end of the week. A stalling front will allow for several waves of Low pressure to ride along the stationary boundary both Thursday and Friday.
At this point in time, we cannot say for certain what impacts Western New York could see as this is solely track dependent. If the idea depicted in the graphic plays out, we’ll start with a wintry mix on Thursday changing over to a potentially plowable snowfall Thursday night and Friday. If the track jogs a bit to the west, snow totals will be kept down due to the evidence of warmer air and sleet. If the storm hops off the coast, snowfall could be greater.
We will have a much better idea on the track and overall impacts from this storm as we get closer with the better quality high resolution forecast models.
The weather will start to calm down somewhat going into the weekend with a few leftover snow showers each day and temps in the lower 30’s.
