Weekend Weather/Fall Foliage Report


JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (WNY NEWS NOW) – With a ridge of high pressure over the region, mainly dry weather is expected through most of the weekend. The next best chance for showers will come later Sunday and into Monday. 

A beautiful Saturday is in store with partly to mostly sunny skies across the region. High temperatures will range from the upper 60’s to the lower 70’s.

A few more clouds will be a round Saturday night with lows in the upper 40’s across the interior portions of the Southern Tier to the lower 50’s near Lake Erie.

As high pressure weakens on Sunday, a weak low pressure system will begin to approach the region from the North. This will increase the cloud cover through the afternoon on Sunday.

Any showers should hold off until overnight Sunday and into the first half of Monday. Although a few isolated showers may sneak into far Western New York by early Sunday evening.

After the shower chances on Monday, high pressure will build back in by Tuesday to provide quiet weather through the middle of next week.

Temperatures will be found in the mid to upper 60’s early on in the week only to rebound into the mid to upper 70’s by the latter half of the work week.



The first “I LOVE NY” 2023 Fall Foliage Report for New York State was released on Wednesday September 13th. Reports are obtained from volunteer observers and reflect expected color conditions for the upcoming weekend. Reports are issued weekly on Wednesday afternoons.

The first report for this Fall shows very little change in leaf color across Western New York so far. The only exception being the Western portions of the Southern Tier where some changes are just starting to occur.
