JAMESTOWN – Lake effect snow will continue in squalls through the night tonight but better weather is ahead for the rest of the week with a gradual warming trend.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Lake Effect Snow for Chautauqua and Warren Counties, effective until 7 a.m. Wednesday morning.
With a north to northwest wind flow aloft, that will keep the lake effect snow machine going with added moisture from the upper Great Lakes. However, the snow will not last long as we will see a return to drier and warmer weather as we head towards the weekend.
Lake effect snow will continue tonight along the inland areas with some mixed rain showers near the Lake Erie shoreline. Expect accumulations between one to four inches with high highest amount along the hills of the Southern Tier. Breezy and cold. Lows 25 valleys, 33 lakeshore. Wind gusts up to 40 MPH possible.
After an early rain or snow shower on Wednesday, the afternoon will become better with partial sunshine but still remanning quite cold. Highs 33 to 40.
Thursday will be a better day overall as high pressure makes a return to the region once again. A mix of clouds and sunshine through the day with highs near 50.
We’ll be in good shape for both Friday and Saturday with partial sunshine each day and highs going into the mid 50’s.
Another disturbance will pass close to the area on Sunday which will bring some scattered rain showers through the day. Highs in the upper 50’s.
A cold front looks to move in behind the system and usher in cooler air once again. There could be mixed rain and snow showers on Monday with highs going back down into the mid 40’s.
