JAMESTOWN – We might officially be in fall but summer has a little something to say about that with some unseasonable warmth through the first half of the weekend with good supplies of sunshine.
A big dome of high pressure continue its influence over much of the northeast which is bringing Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania gorgeous weather. With a wind flow aloft favoring a southernly direction, we’ll warm up nicely throughout the reminder of the week before some well-needed rain heads our way early next week.
Mainly clear skies will take us through the evening with clouds increasing in coverage after midnight. Some patchy river valley fog will be possible. Lows 48 in the deepest valleys to around 60 at the Lake Erie waterfront.
A few clouds will be coming on in for Thursday so we’ll call the majority of the day partly to mostly sunny. Highs 66 to 75.
The warm air will peak Friday and Saturday when temperatures go into the upper 70’s across much of the area with a couple lower 80’s possible in the warmer pockets. Each day will feature a wealth of sunshine with the humidity remaining low.
As an upper level trough begins to dig into the Great Lakes on Sunday, a cold front will be dragged along that trough bringing the chance for showers and maybe a couple rumbles each day through early next week. While no day is looking like a washout, showers will be prevalent during this period.
There could also be a window for some gusty to strong winds Monday and Tuesday depending on the exact track of an area of Low pressure that will move to our north and west. This trough will also usher in cooler and more seasonable air back into the region later next week.
