JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (WNY NEWS NOW) – A chilly airmass across the Northeast will allow for some lake effect rain and snow showers through the middle of the week.
A low pressure system to our South will allow widespread rain to continue across the region through at least mid-Monday. Rain will tapper off through the afternoon with generally dry but cloudy skies through the rest of the day.
Light lake effect rain and higher elevation snow showers will set up overnight tonight and into the day on Tuesday.
Less than an inch of snow is possible across the higher elevations overnight. Outside of any lake effect, it will be dry on Tuesday with partial sunshine.
Temperatures on Monday and Tuesday will be quite chilly with highs in the mid 30’s to lower 40’s.
Trick or Treaters Tuesday evening should see mainly dry conditions with a few scattered mixed showers possible. However, it will be quite chilly with temperatures in the 30’s.
Enough colder air will allow for mainly lake effect snow showers Tuesday night and into Wednesday. Coverage area of these rain snow showers will increase with the passing of a weak system.
A light dusting to an inch of snow is possible once again Tuesday night, mainly on the hills. With little to no accumulation elsewhere.
Drier weather will return by the end of the week, ending any leftover lake effect.
Temperatures will also moderate a bit back towards the upper 40’s to lower 50’s.
