JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (WNY NEWS NOW) – A low pressure system will move North of the region tonight and into Tuesday. This will bring with it a few showers and a period of gusty winds.
Most of Monday afternoon will be dry, with partly sunny skies. Highs will reach the mid to upper 50’s.
Showers in association with the system mentioned above will arrive across Western New York late this afternoon and into the evening hours.
Winds will increase this afternoon and into tonight with gust of 30-40 MPH. The strongest gust will be found near Lake Erie and along the Chautauqua Ridge.
A trailing cold front will cross the region Tuesday morning with a few showers accompanying it. Highs will occur in the lower 50’s early on in the day and drop into the 40’s by the afternoon.
Tuesday night through most of Wednesday looks to be mainly dry before more showers are likely later on Wednesday and into Thursday.
