JAMESTOWN – The marriage of two storm systems will bring us some minor accumulating snow through early tonight. A warmer and drier weekend is ahead before another chance of rain and or wet snow showers return for next week.
Snow showers will develop across the area with a breezy north to northwest wind. Any accumulation will be light across the lower elevations with as much as 3 inches on the highest hills of the Southern Tier. Highs will range 34 on the hills to 39 near the Lake Erie shoreline.
Snow showers will come to an end after midnight tonight leading to mostly cloudy skies overnight. Additional accumulations will range an inch or less across the lower elevations to 2 inches on the hills. The winds could still gust up to 30 MPH especially in the evening hours. Lows 19 valleys, 24 lakeshore.
On Saturday, morning clouds will give way to mostly sunny skies for the afternoon as a ridge oof High pressure returns to the region once again. However with a north wind aloft, we will stay cooler than average. Highs 36 to 42.
That ridge sharpens up for Sunday with bright sunshine continuing throughout the day. We will spike up into the lower 50’s near Lake Erie, to 60 or even a bit above well inland away from the lake breeze.
As the High pressure ridge sides off the Atlantic coast, another system will follow behind from the southwest. We’ll still be in the upper 50’s on Monday with a small chance for a scattered or isolated rain shower in the afternoon.
Another trough will dig into the region Tuesday through Thursday being temps back down into the 40’s with a better chance for rain showers which may mix with a few wet snow flakes later in the week.
