JAMESTOWN – The sun is out and smiling down at you today with somewhat cooler temperatures. Precipitation returns tonight which may mix with some wet snow showers early in the day on Tuesday.

Mostly sunny skies will carry us through the afternoon today. With a westerly wind direction, that will keep the imitate Lake Erie shoreline a bit cooler than the inland areas. Highs will range 44 at the lakeshore to 51 inland.

As a storm system passes well to our north tonight, rain showers will develop overnight with possibly an embedded thunderstorm. The wind will also begin to tick up out of the south; 15 to 25 MPH with gusts up to 45 MPH possible. Lows 34 valleys, 38 lakeshore.

Rain will continue early on Tuesday and then transitioning over to a period of wet snow before becoming for scattered for the afternoon. While there should be very little to no accumulation, don’t be shocked if some spots mainly along the hills get a light coating. It will stay breezy through the day with wind gusts possibly up to 40 MPH at times. Highs 37 to 43.

A mainly dry Wednesday will be coming up with just a small chance for a rain or snow shower. Mostly cloudy and cold. Highs in lower 40’s.

Another storm system will be moving by to our south Thursday and Friday, trigging off more widespread showers both days. We’ll be back into the mid 50’s once again on Thursday before falling back into the upper 40’s Friday.

The weekend, as of now, will be mainly day with a chance for scattered rain showers from time to time with highs in the upper 40’s to lower 50’s.
