JAMESTOWN – Get ready for yet another threat for strong to severe thunderstorms throughout the day on Wednesday as a storm system moves close to the region.

The humidity has came down thanks to the passage of a Cold front but some spotty showers will be possible tonight especially near the state line. More widespread showers and thunderstorms will be likely throughout the day on Wednesday before we turn up the heat again going into next week.

The NOAA Storm Prediction Center has placed all of Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania under a low-end Marginal Risk, a level 1 out of 5, for severe thunderstorms tomorrow.

Understand while the overall threat for severe activity is low, there is a chance a couple storms could become strong to severe with gusty winds and heavy rainfall the main threats.

Besides the chance for an isolated shower or thundershower near the New York/ Pennsylvania line tonight, expect mostly cloudy skies otherwise. Lows 63 in the valleys, 71 at the Lake Erie Shoreline.

As a storm system moves to the northwest of the region, numerous to widespread showers and thunderstorms will be likely throughout the day on Wednesday. Once again, a couple of them could be strong to severe. Highs 76 to 83.

Scattered showers and storms will be possible on Thursday with highs near 80.

High pressure will return on Friday bringing a good supply of sunshine through Saturday with highs in the lower 80’s.

As we head into Sunday, a big surge of heat and humidity will make a return to the region once again. Highs will spike well into the upper 80’s with some lower 90’s possible in spots. With the humidity in place, scattered afternoon showers and storms will be possible on Monday.
