JAMESTOWN – An unseasonably warm and muggy airmass continues to influence our weather pattern through much of this week. A big cool down will be on the way as we had into the weekend into early next week.
With a rather moist airmass sitting overtop of us, we cannot rule out the chance for a couple scattered, widely-spaced showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. This activity will follow the same pattern as Monday; they will pop-up at random times through the afternoon in random spots, making them virtually impossible to predict where they will set up.
Otherwise, lots of sunshine across the area this afternoon with little wind to help make you feel cooler. Highs 80 at the Lake Erie waterfront to 87+ inland.
After a potential early evening shower or storm dissipates, the rest of tonight will be mainly clear and remains quite warm and muggy. Lows 62 valleys, 69 lakeshore. Light wind.
A few more clouds will mix in with the sun at times on Wednesday while remaining dry and warm. The humidity will still be a factor through the day. Highs 78 to 86.
Heading into Wednesday night, a storm system will move northward through the mid Atlantic and spread a better chance for showers and maybe a thundershower or two on Thursday and Friday. While the temperatures will start to go down at this point, the humidity will stay a decent player through the week. Highs in the upper 70’s.
Another ridge of high pressure will slide down from Canada over the weekend and provide the region with mainly sunny skies through Monday. The high will also cause a shift in the upper air winds to bring in cooler and less humid air during this period. Highs will likely be in the mid to upper 60’s with low humidity.
