JAMESTOWN – High pressure has built back into the region once again leading to a good supply of sunshine this weekend. We stay cool however before warming back up again next week with some precipitation chances.
Through the day today, clouds will be slow to part but once they do, the area will see a nice dose of sunshine this afternoon. However with a northerly wind aloft, that will keep us much cooler. Highs today will range 28 on the highest hills to 35 along the lower elevations.
With a clearing sky tonight and a light wind, most people will likely dip quite a bit in the temperature department by tomorrow morning. Lows 14 valleys, 21 lakeshore.
We will start to take on a more southernly wind flow on Sunday and with the aid of plentiful sunshine, we should be back into the mid 40’s once again.
A developing coastal storm early next week will bring the chance for rain and wet snow showers Sunday night through the day on Monday with highs in the lower to mid 40’s.
Earlier we had hinted at the potential for maybe some sleet or freezing rain with this feature on Monday but the new computer model guidance is keeping that line to our south. We should transition to plain rain showers for a period later in the day on Monday before coming to an end late Monday night.
An area of weak high pressure temporally moves in for Tuesday before the high is scooted on out by waves of short troughs though much of the week.
Much of the precipitation for Tuesday and Wednesday will be dependent on the track of a developing storm system. There currently remains some disagreements with the prime global models on this storm so we’ll have more details once we get the better quality data.
