JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (WNY NEWS NOW) – Outside of some minor lake effect snow on Monday and some nuisance snow showers Wednesday, the remainder of the week will be mainly dry.
Colder air flowing into the region on Monday will generate a relatively weak lake effect snow band. The band will focus on the Chautauqua Ridge on Monday and then shift Northward and weakened Monday night.
Snowfall totals will only be an inch or two with mostly cloudy skies outside of any snow showers.

A few light snow showers will be possible across the region on Wednesday with no to very little accumulation expected.
After Wednesday, high pressure building in across the region will promote partly to mostly sunny skies for Thursday and Friday.
