JAMESTOWN – The warmth and humidity continue this afternoon with sun peaking through the clouds. A better chance for showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible later in the week before cooler air arrives for the weekend.

High pressure is starting to slide on out which is allowing the cloud cover associated with a storm to our south to work its way northward and into the region. There will be a mix of clouds and sunshine through the afternoon. While not as hot as it was yesterday, the humidity is still in play through the day. Highs 80 on the hills, 87 across the lower elevations. South wind 5 to 10 MPH.

Mostly cloudy skies will make us through tonight while remaining warm and quite muggy. A southernly breeze will tick up after midnight. Lows 62 valleys, 68 lakeshore.

A few rain showers will be around from place to place on Thursday with a few thunderstorms possible in the afternoon. Still somewhat muggy. Highs 75 to 82.

The better chance for rain will be on Friday with a few thunderstorms possible mainly in the afternoon. The NOAA Storm Prediction Center has outlined the far eastern Southern Tier, mainly southern Allegany County southward, under a low-end Marginal Risk (level 1/5) for severe thunderstorms.

Should any storms become strong to severe throughout the day, the main threats will be from damaging winds and heavy rainfall.

A cooler pattern will take us through the weekend with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 60’s through early next week.
