Widespread Rain Saturday, More Lake Effect Into Next Week

JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (WNY NEWS NOW) – A low pressure system will move by to our South on Saturday with widespread rain showers likely. Chillier air with lake effect rain showers will follow into Sunday and early next week.

As low pressure moves by to our South on Saturday/Saturday night, rain will be found across the region.

This is especially the case across the Southern Tier and Northern Pennsylvania where more moderate to at times heavier rain will be found closer to the center of the system.

Rainfall totals of upwards of an inch or more will be possible near the New York/Pennsylvania state line. Rain intensity and amounts will drop off the farther North you are.

Winds will also be a bit breezy on Saturday with gust as high as 30-35 MPH.

Wrap around moisture and cool air will crank up the lake effect rain machine Sunday and into early next week. Outside of these lake effect showers, skies will be mostly cloudy with areas of just scattered rain

High temperatures through the weekend and into early next week will be found in the upper 40’s to lower 50’s.

Drier weather will return by the middle of next week with temperatures climbing closer to normal by Wednesday/Thursday.
