JAMESTOWN – Open the pool back up for one last time as what could be summers last dance will be the story this weekend with lots of sunshine and unseasonably warm temperatures.
High pressure along with a stalled front well to our north is keeping us rather clear with loads of sun and milder temperatures. We’ll warmup quite nicely over the weekend before some well needed rain heads our way next week with a fall-like pattern taking hold later in the week.
Mainly clear and start-lit tonight with areas of patchy river valley fog developing by morning. Lows 49 in the deepest valleys, 57 at the Lake Erie shoreline.
Saturday will feature lots of sunshine with above normal temperatures. Highs 74 to 83.
The warming trending will continue into Sunday with mostly sunny skies and becoming a tiny bit humid as well. Highs 76 to 85.
As we head into next week, a deep upper level trough will dig into the Great Lakes which will begin to change our weather pattern. Scattered showers and possibly a few rumbles will be likely almost each day next week with temperatures dropping back down into a fall-like feel.
The other piece to this will be a storm system passing to our north and west. Winds will gradually pick up Monday night into Tuesday as the system scoots on by. As we stand now, winds may gust up to 35 MPH throughout the day on Tuesday.
The Wednesday and Thursday timeframe is uncertain right now with no real consistency in model guidance in regards to temperatures. The exact placement of the trough will be key in determining how much colder air is dragged into the region. Expect changes to that area of the forecast over the next few days.
