JAMESTOWN – We’ll be waving goodbye to the refreshing air as summer heat and humidity will be on the way throughout the rest of the week into next week.
High pressure continues its control over our weather pattern over the eastern Great Lakes. A northernly wind flow is keeping the temperatures and the overall humidity down to a manageable level. We’ll start to see an increase in the heat and humidity values as we work throughout the remainder of the week with a few opportunities for showers and storms at times.
Partly to mainly clear this evening with a few clouds building in overnight. Not quite as chilly. Lows 56 in the valleys, 63 at the Lake Erie shoreline.
Partly to mostly sunny skies will take us through the day on Thursday with a chance for a couple afternoon showers or thunderstorms. Warmer and muggier. Highs 76 to 84.
Friday will be a near rinse and repeat day with partly to mostly sunny skies, a couple isolated or scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible during the peak heating hours of the afternoon. Still muggy. Highs 78 to 85.
A better chance for showers and thunderstorms will will arrive on Saturday with the overall best chance for those storms from the late morning onward towards the evening hours. Still warm and humid. Highs in the lower 80’s.
A partly to mostly sunny day will be coming up on Sunday but the humidity rises to near oppressive levels as tropical-like air surges into the region with a southerly wind. Highs in the lower 80’s.
The peak of the heat will likely come on Monday and Tuesday as temperatures rise to the lower to mid 80’s with oppressive humidity. There will be good supply of sunshine to go around with scattered afternoon and evening showers and storms popping up during the heat of the of the day.
