JAMESTOWN – We officially started fall this morning as the Equinox occurred at 9:31 a.m. and it is feeling like fall today with hazy sunshine but some warmer air is on the way for the end of the week.
The Jet Stream is pulling western US wildfire smoke back into the region once again which will create a milky white to hazy sky this afternoon but is far enough up into the atmosphere to cause any health concerns. Some warmer air will be moving in by the end of the week with some rain showers possible over the second half of the weekend into early next week.
Smoky to hazy sunshine will take us through the afternoon with below average temperatures. Highs 63 on the hills, 71 at the Lake Erie shoreline.
Mainly clear and starlit skies tonight albeit not quite as chilly as recent nights. Lows 43 valleys, 57 lakeshore.
Another sunny day will be coming up on Wednesday with temperatures nudging up a few more degrees. Highs 67 to 76.
A few more clouds will be filtering in on Thursday but the sun will be out at times through the day. Highs in the lower 70’s.
We will start a warming trend on Friday which will see temperatures rise into the mid to upper 70’s through Saturday with lots of sunshine to go around.
As an upper-level trough digs into the area on Sunday, scattered showers will be prevalent throughout the day. As it stands now, the day will not be a total scrub with some periods of dry time. Highs in the lower 70’s.
A few scattered showers will be possible on Monday with partial sunshine and highs dropping back into the upper 60’s.
