JAMESTOWN – We’ve been in a nice break from the recent heat and mugginess but that won’t last for long as another “heat wave” will be on the way later in the week.
The remnants of former Tropical Storm Fay have merged with a frontal system off the Atlantic east coast wrapping us in the flow around the low. That has kept the cloud cover around for Monday but will also continue to produce a few inland showers through the day on Tuesday.
After any early showers or storms taper off this evening, the remainder of the night will be dry with partly cloudy skies. Lows 53 in the valleys, 64 at the Lake Erie shoreline.
Tomorrow will be mainly dry but with that system hanging around off the coast, we will have the chance for a couple spotty inland showers or rumbles. The better chance for those will likely be in Cattaraugus County and further east. Highs 73 to 80.
Heading into Wednesday, a shift in the wind flow aloft will surge warmer and more humid air back into the northeast once again. Temps will rise into the mid 80’s with a good supply of sunshine.
As a system moves through on Thursday, there will be a better chance for showers and thunderstorms throughout the day. Highs in the mid 80’s.
As the humidity peeks on Friday, popup showers and thunderstorms will make a return to the region once again delving during the peak heating hours of the afternoon and evening. Highs in the mid to upper 80’s each day.
