JAMESTOWN – Summer is back and the heat and humidity will be the story throughout the week with a few opportunities for scattered showers and storms.
With high pressure firmly settled in across the northeast, we’ll have mainly dry weather throughout the week. However, with the high amounts of humidity in the air, we won’t rule out the chance for some scattered showers and storms popping up in the afternoons.
It will be a mainly clear and dry night. The humidity will remain up making it a rather uncomfortable night for sleeping. There could be some patchy fog delving along the valley locations. Lows 64 in the valleys, 73 at the Lake Erie shoreline.
We’ll start the day dry on Tuesday with random showers and thunderstorms popping up in the afternoon due to the high humidity and daytime heating with early sunshine. Keep in mind, these will pop up in random spots throughout the afternoon and rain themselves out within an hour or so. Just keep the radar handy and head inside once you hear thunder. Quite mild and muggy. Highs 80 to 87.
After some morning showers on Wednesday, the skies will clear in the afternoon with partly to mostly sunny skies. Highs in the lower 80’s.
We will squeak in a dry day on Thursday but remaining quite muggy. Highs in the lower 80’s.
Friday through the weekend will see a return to those popup scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms each day. Just like before, each day will not be be total washout with a good amount fo dry time in between with partly to mostly sunny skies. The humidity still will be a factor through the weekend. Highs in the lower 80’s.
