JAMESTOWN — July marks the official start of the infamous “Dog Days of Summer” and we’ll be ringing it in fashion as the temperatures and the humidity continue to climb.
A stubborn storm system off the Atlantic coast continues to churn and bring in more clouds from the east. A blocking area of high pressure to our northwest keep us in the drier side of that storm before big surge of heat pushes in over the holiday weekend.
The cloud cover will clear out this evening leading to another glorious night tonight. We stay mild and slightly bit muggy. Some patchy fog will be likely overnight in the deepest valleys. Lows 59 in the valleys, 67 at the Lake Erie shoreline. Light wind.
Lots of sunshine will take us through the day on Thursday with the humidity levels ticking up a bit more. Highs 80 to 87.
We will continue this dry stretch of weather all of the way through the 4th of July weekend with temperatures in the mid to upper 80’s with increasing humidity.
Heading into next week, we will be close to heat wave territory temperatures soar close to 90 degrees both Monday and Tuesday. While we do have a chance for an afternoon shower to thunderstorm on Monday, it is a rather small chance with spotty coverage at best. Most of the day will be baking in hot sunshine.
