JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (WNY NEWS NOW) – A cold front will slowly cross the region on Friday with rain throughout most of the day. The weekend looks mainly dry, although much cooler than previous days.
Rain associated with the cold front will arrive across far Western New York around 9/10AM and continue through much of Friday.
Rainfall totals through Friday night will range from a half to three quarters of an inch of rain.
Breezy winds will also be around on Friday with gust of 30-40 MPH.
High temperatures will occur early on in the day in the mid to upper 50’s.
The front will exit the region Friday night with colder air returning back to the region for the weekend.
Dry air quickly builds in behind the front for Saturday allowing for mainly dry conditions. Although high temperatures will struggle to make it past the lower 40’s.
A weak system Saturday night into Sunday may touch off a few scattered rain or snow showers, though they will end through the day on Sunday.
Dry weather will continue into Monday with partly sunny skies.
High temperatures on Sunday and Monday will continue to only reach the low to mid 40’s.
The attention then turns to the potential for a more major storm for Tuesday and into Thanksgiving.
As of now, rain and gusty winds look likely on Tuesday with the possibility of our first significant lake effect snow event of the season for Wednesday and into Thanksgiving.
Band placement and total snowfall accumulations are still far too early to know, though do look more and more likely to happen.
This could impact holiday travel for Thanksgiving.
