JAMESTOWN – Stay weather aware over the next several days as showers and thunderstorms will be coming our way with the potential some of them could be strong to severe.

Thanks to a very stubborn front that will not go away, scattered showers and thunderstorms will be be commonplace over the next several days. The front will also have the potential to produce some stronger storms before we crank down the heat next week after the front finally moves through.

The NOAA Storm Prediction Center has placed all of the region under a standard Slight Risk, level 2 out of 5, for severe thunderstorms on Wednesday.







While the majority of the day will be dry, the better chance for rain and storms will be much later in the afternoon into the evening with the main threats being damaging winds and large hail.













The SPC has us under a Slight risk again for Thursday with the main threats once again being from damaging winds, large hail, and heavy rain.

We are outlined under a “15%” risk area for Friday by the SPC with once again, damaging winds being the main factor within any severe storms.

Partly cloudy skies will take us through tonight while being cooler and somewhat less humid. Lows 54 in the valleys, 63 at the Lake Erie shoreline. Light winds.

Tomorrow will start dry with lots of sunshine throughout much of the day. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will arrive later in the day near sunset with some of them potentially strong to severe. Highs 76 to 84.

Scattered showers and storms will continue through the night on Wednesday with a few potentially stronger. Mild and muggier. Lows 60 to 66.

Those showers and thunderstorms will persist throughout much of the day on Thursday with some, once again, potentially becoming strong to severe. Warm and muggy. Highs in the mid 80’s.

Like a broken record, showers and thunderstorms will be likely on Friday with a few possibly strong to severe. Highs in the upper 70’s.

Depending on the exact track of the remnants of Hurricane Laura, some tropical moisture may filter into the region on Saturday as remnant low merges with another storm system. Tropical downpours will be possible along with some thunder at times. Highs in the upper 70’s.

We’ll start to cool it down heading into next week along with the sunshine coming back in good force Sunday and Monday. Highs will drop into the lower to mid 70’s with very comfortable humidity.
