JAMESTOWN – Enjoy the sunshine while we have it as more precipitation will be on the way for the first half of the weekend but that does come with some brief milder air through early next week.
An area of high pressure has settled in to our south and west which has been the driving force behind the sunshine Thursday afternoon. A weak cold front will slide by tonight but that high will stay in control of our weather pattern through Friday. A storm system passing south of the region on Saturday will bring in our next precipitation chances with a brief warmup.
Partly to mostly cloudy tonight. A stray snow flurry is possible. Chilly but not as windy. Lows 18 in the valleys, 24 at the Lake Erie shoreline.
Morning clouds on Friday will give way to a great amount of sunshine for the afternoon. A Bit milder. Highs 36 to 44.
As a storm scoots by to our south on Saturday, we’ll be brushed by the northern edge of the system. Scattered rain and snow showers are likely in the morning before becoming all rain for the afternoon. A surge of milder air will also accompany the system; highs 43 to 49.
A few leftover rain showers are possible on Sunday with some partly to mostly sunny intervals. Becoming very mild. Highs in the upper 40’s.
A trough will dig through the region on Monday with a disturbance passing north and west of us through Ontario, Canada. Mixed rain and snow showers are possible with this feature along with the potential for gusty winds and colder temperatures. Highs in the lower 30’s.
High pressure will build back into the Great Lakes which will give us a good amount of sunshine for Tuesday. However with the wind flow still favoring a north to west direction, we’ll stay on the colder side with highs in the lower 30’s.
A few more clouds may mix in with sun on Wednesday while also becoming milder again. Highs in the mid 40’s.
