JAMESTOWN – After a very windy day on Monday, things have settled down for today but cold air will continue throughout the remainder of the week with some snow flakes for some later in the week.
Clouds will thicken up from west to east today as High pressure moves out to our east. Winds will still be windy through the afternoon as gusts could reach up to 30 MPH. Highs will range 39 on the highest hills to 35 near the Lake Erie shoreline.
A few rain and snow showers will be possible overnight with mostly cloudy intervals. It will remain breezy early but the winds will diminish after midnight. Lows 28 valleys, 34 lakeshore.
We will keep a chance for a few rain and snow showers Wednesday and Thursday. Temperatures will struggle to make it into the lower 40’s for some areas, bringing a more late-February feel to the region.
Another storm will likely squeak by the region Thursday night and Friday, bringing some rain and maybe some wet snow showers to portion of the Southern Tier. While accumulations, if any, are still in a bit of debate, the overall impacts should remain minor. Highs in the mid 40’s.
A mainly dry Saturday will be coming our way with partial sunshine but with temps still be below average in the mid 40’s.
We will see a brief return to 50’s on Sunday with a few scattered rain showers before another trough digs into the region early next week, dropping temps back down into the upper 40’s with scattered rain and snow showers.
Don’t forget!! The National Weather Service in Buffalo is holding an online storm spotter training session tonight at 7 p.m. Spotters are very critical to the warning process as it is only spotters who see down at ground level. The ground truth is so important and we need more them!
The session normally runs between and hour and half to two hours and will cover many basic meteorology topics including storm structure and severe weather characteristics.
The training session is fun for the whole family and is free to attend. You can register at www.weather.gov/buf/skywarn.
