JAMESTOWN – Thanks to an area of high pressure north of us, we will remain mainly dry over the next couple of days. Another storm system moving close to the region will bring a return of rain showers and gusty winds on Friday ahead of a rather nice weekend.

There is a small chance for a light drizzle or sprinkle through the afternoon hours today as a storm to our west falls apart as it hits that blocking high. However, we will be left with the cloudiness through the day from the remnants of that system with some peaks of sunshine from time to time. Highs will range 42 on the hills to 46 near the Lake Erie shoreline.

Tonight will be rather quiet with mostly cloudy skies and a light wind. Lows 30 valleys, 35 lakeshore.

Thursday will be another mainly dry day with partial sunshine at times, light wind and milder. Highs 49 to 56.

Heading into Thursday night, a storm system passing north of the region in Ontario will spread rain showers through Western New York through the overnight. Because we’re going to be on the warmer side of the advancing system, lows will only dip back into the mid to upper 40’s.

A cold front will follow right behind this system, leading to our highs on Friday in the upper 40’s occurring early in the day, sliding back through the 30’s by the end of the day. The better chance for rain will be in the morning and early afternoon with partial clearing late in the day.

It will also become windy once again with a west wind 25 to 35 MPH with gusts up to 45 MPH at times.

We will be in good shape for the weekend with partly to mostly skies each day and highs in the lower to mid 40’s.

We stay dry and mild into early next week with only a small chance for a scattered rain shower on Tuesday with highs in the lower 50’s.
