JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (WNY NEWS NOW) – Behind a cold front that crossed the region Tuesday night, cooler air will pour into the region resulting in below average temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday.
More clouds than sunshine can be expected through Wednesday afternoon. Colder air and cloud cover will keep temperatures in the lower to mid 60s, with some areas not making it out of the upper 50’s.
Cooler air and a weak trough moving over the region tonight will provide enough juice for lake effect rain showers overnight tonight. Focused mainly on the Southern Tier. Lows will drop into the mid 40’s to lower 50’s.
Needless to say, if we were any later into the year we would be talking about lake effect snow showers instead of rain.
As high pressure builds in on Thursday, any showers/clouds will end early on in the day. Sunshine will increase through the afternoon with highs still only in the mid 60’s.
Dry and comfortable weather is in store for Friday and through most of the weekend. With clouds and shower chances not increasing until late Sunday.
Temperatures will rebound into the upper 60’s to lower 70’s by the weekend.
