JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (WNY NEWS NOW) – A weak ridge of high pressure will bring a period of dry weather to the region through most of Thursday. More rain in association with a cold front will return Thursday night and into Friday.
Clouds will be a round through the early afternoon hours of Wednesday with some partial clearing through the afternoon hours. Highs will be found in the low to mid 50’s.
Skies will remain partially cleared overnight tonight which will allow for some valley fog to develop. Lows will range from the mid 30’s inland to the mid 40’s near Lake Erie.
Most of Thursday will be dry, although clouds will increase through the afternoon hours. Thursday will end up being the warmest day of the week with highs approaching the low to mid 60’s. Winds will be a bit breezy with gust up to 30-35 MPH.
Rain showers will overspread the region Thursday night and into Friday as a low pressure system pushes a cold front through the region by later Friday. Rainfall totals will not be all that impressive with around a quarter of an inch in most areas.
We’ll remain in a chilly pattern through the weekend with lake effect rain showers across portions of Western New York. High temperatures will return back into the mid to upper 40’s.
Drier air will work back into the area by early next week ending any leftover showers.
