JAMESTOWN – High pressure continues to bring the region sunny and mild weather through late this week. However, the Memorial Day weekend could be a bit iffy with a couple chances for some showers.
That same area of high pressure we talked about yesterday continues its “Rex Block” on a storm system to our south. Thanks to that barricade, the high will continue to be in control and keep precipitation and cloud cover away from Western New York.
Expect lots of blue sky out there this afternoon with a few high clouds from time to time mainly early in the day. Temperatures around to just above average. Highs 67 on the hills to 75 across the lower elevations. Nice southeast breeze 10 to 15 MPH.
Any high clouds will clear out for the overnight leading to mostly clear skies. Some frost could develop by morning mainly in the deepest valleys of the Southern Tier. Since we are around our average last frost date, the should likely be the final frost of the season. Lows 36 valleys, 43 lakeshore.
Thursday will be another fantastic day with tons of sunshine to go around. Highs 70 to 77.
As the blocking high starts to fall apart on Friday, that could allow for a little bit of moisture to infiltrate on the southern edge of the breaking down high and spare possibly a couple showers Friday afternoon through the weekend. However, some partial sun will be likey each day. Highs in the lower to mid 70’s.
Memorial Day itself will be partly sunny with highs close to 80 degrees.
Tuesday could see a couple showers or thundershowers with highs in the lower 80’s.
