JAMESTOWN – Rain will be returning to the region tonight through Friday with the potential for strong wind gusts. 

Tonight will start dry with mostly cloudy to overcast skies but rain will overspread the region from west to east overnight as a storm system passes north of us into Canada. An approaching front behind the storm will keep temperatures nearly steady with lows 49 in the valleys to 53 at the shoreline.

The winds will also begin to increase overnight with winds 15 to 30 MPH with gusts upwards to 45 MPH. Spots near the Lake Erie shoreline may flirt with 50 MPH gusts at times.

The better chance for rain tomorrow will be in the morning and early afternoon as the storm moves away from the region. Behind it, we may actually clear out the skies for a time in the afternoon with some peaks of sunshine but will remain windy wind gust upwards of 40 MPH.

The official highs will occur very early in the day; near 50 degrees for most areas. As the front plows on through, we will drop through the 40’s int he afternoon, likely ending the day in the upper 30’s to near 40.

We dry out for the weekend with the return of high pressure although with a seasonable chill on Saturday. With a more northerly wind on Sunday, we’ll be held down into the mid to upper 30’s but with plentiful sunshine to go around.

We stay dry on Monday as milder air filters back into the region once again. A weak system moving through Monday night and Tuesday may trigger off a few scattered showers from time to time but with above average temperatures in the upper 40’s to nearing 50 once again on Wednesday.
