Lake Effect Snow, Bitter Cold Temperatures This Weekend

JAMESTOWN – The coldest air mass we’ve seen so far this year will keep the lake effect snow machine going for the first half of the weekend, before high pressure drys us out for Sunday.

Lake effect snow showers will continue through the first half of the day today, before slowly tapering off into the afternoon hours. Outside of any bands expect mostly cloudy skies but with chilly temperatures. Highs will only range from the upper teens to lower-20’s.

High pressure builds in tonight that will keep it mainly cloudy, with only a few stray snow showers possible. Lows will only be in the lower teens.

With high pressure in control, tomorrow will be mostly cloudy with highs in the mid-20’s. We may squeeze out a few breaks of sun.

Another system approaches the region later on Monday, the first half of the day will be mostly cloudy before a few snow showers arrive later in the day. Highs in the lower-30’s. We’ll see only a little accumulation Monday night into Tuesday.

We’ll keep a chance for snow showers in the forecast for Tuesday with mostly cloudy skies. Highs in the upper-20’s.

High pressure will bring a return for dry weather with some sun for the mid-week time frame. Although it will be chilly with highs only in the low to mid-20’s.

We’ll watch for another system to track into the region by the end of next week.
