JAMESTOWN – The summer like warmth is long gone with fall settling in across the region with some opportunities for well-needed showers throughout this week.
An advancing Cold front will become the focal point for some showers from west to east tonight which will continue throughout much of this week in on and off again nature. The frontal passage will also usher in much cooler air from Canada bringing us back to reality with traditional fall temperatures.
A few spotty showers will be possible this evening then become more numerous late. Not quite as mild. Lows 52 in the valleys. 58 at the Lake Erie shoreline. The wind also picks up out of west-southwest with gusts possibly reaching 30 MPH at times.
Morning showers on Tuesday will gradually come to an end with a chance for a spotty shower throughout the afternoon. Otherwise, Mostly cloudy. Much cooler. Highs 55 hills, 64 lakeshore.
As a storm system scoots on by to our east on Wednesday, we cannot say we’ll totally be in the clear from precipitation given its very close proximity. While most of the high resolution model guidance is keeping the western most counties dry for the most part, there could be a couple passing showers especially from Cattaraugus County east and south. Highs 57 to 66.
As the trough digs into the region throughout the reminder of the week, temperatures will be going down into the lower to mid 50’s with rain showers increasing in coverage for Thursday and Friday.
As we stand now, Saturday will the pick day of the weekend with partial sunshine albeit chilly with highs struggling to stay in the lower 50’s.
There could be an isolated to scattered shower on Sunday with partial sunshine. Highs in the mid 50’s.
