JAMESTOWN – While there is a light at the end of this tunnel of cold, we have to make it through one more night of chilly temperatures before spring finally takes over.
As we were expecting, the National Weather Service has reissued the Freeze Warning for all of Western New York and Warren County, Pennsylvania, going into effect at midnight and running through 9 a.m. Wednesday.
As early planters know, frost and freeze condition can cause harm to temperature sensitive plants and vegetation if left uncovered or outdoor`s.
While we had a mainly sunny start to the day, clouds were quick to come in overcast the skies. There is some clearing back behind this so while call the afternoon partly to mostly sunny on average. While the sun will be out at times, it will not aid us in warming up at all. Highs 42 on the hills, 49 near the Lake Erie shoreline.
Partly cloudy skies early tonight will give way to mainly clear skies overnight. Areas of frost will develop after midnight. Another cold night. Lows 26 valleys, 34 lakeshore. Light winds.
Lots of sunshine will be around for Wednesday with possibly just a few high clouds at times. Milder but still below average. Highs 52 to 58.1
As high pressure moves out, that will allow a wave of low pressure to pass north of us and bring some scattered to occasional rain and thundershowers to the region Thursday and Friday.
With a southerly wind flow aloft, warmer moist air will surge into the northeast bringing temperatures back to around normal into the upper 60’s to lower 70’s.
A weak high moves in Saturday with a small chance for an isolated shower through the day.
As another wave of low pressure goes directly over Western New York on Sunday, widespread rain and thundershowers will be likely with a few leftover showers possible on Monday of next week.
