JAMESTOWN – Almost a carbon copy of Wednesday out there today with loads of sunshine and seasonable temperatures thanks to high pressure. However, that high will start to erode tomorrow leading to a couple showers possibly over the holiday weekend.
As been the case over the past couple of days, a “Rex Block” of high pressure continues to maintain its hold across Western New York keeping precipitation and even the clouds well to our south. The sun will be out in full force today with lots of blue sky. The UV Index is also in the “Very High” category so sunscreen is highly recommended if you’re going to be outdoors today. Highs 68 to 76.
After a manly clear starlit evening, some clouds will be moving in south to north overnight as the force of the high starts to fade. A southernly wind will prevent temperatures from rapidly dropping during the evening. Lows 52 to 56.
The high pressure block continues to fall apart throughout the day on Friday with a mix of clouds and sun through mid afternoon. A chance for a few scattered showers in the late afternoon after 3 p.m. Highs 65 to 73.
Looking into the Memorial Day Weekend, rain chances have increased slightly as the broken-down high will allow a little more moisture to infiltrate from the south. With that said, neither day is a scrub with pockets of partial sunshine in between with highs in the mid to upper 70’s.
Memorial Day itself will be once again manly dry with a 20 to 25% chance for a spotty shower. Very mild and somewhat muggy. Highs near 80.
We will keep the chance for a shower or two through mid next week along with some partial sun at times. Highs in the upper 70’s to lower 80’s.
