JAMESTOWN – Sweltering heat will blanket our area this weekend, before thunderstorms roll though Sunday night.
The National Weather Service in Buffalo issued a heat advisory from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday for Chautauqua County.
Sunday will be mainly sunny and hot with heat index values expected to reach the upper 90s in the afternoon.
Additionally, dewpoints should be into the upper-60’s to near 70 making the air fell unpleasant and sticky.
A cold front will move by Sunday night bringing rain showers and the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms.
The NOAA Storm Prediction Center has most of the region under a slight risk for severe weather.
Potentially damaging winds, hail, and heavy rain will be the main issue with these storms.
Behind the front Monday will be a tad bit cooler with highs in the lower-80’s with less humidity. Otherwise a shower is possible in the morning with partly cloudy skies.
The rest of the week will be warm with highs in the low to mid-80’s with moderate humidity levels.
