JAMESTOWN – Temperatures will remain quite chilly for this time of the year through the afternoon today with some patchy frost developing throughout the overnight hours. High pressure builds back into the region tomorrow, leading to an overall nice weekend.
With the north-northwest wind continuing to dominate the flow aloft, do not expect much in the way of sunshine or warmer temps. There may be a few peaks of sunshine this afternoon before sundown, however. Highs will range from near 40 in the deepest valleys to 52 at the Lake Erie shoreline.
Tonight is the next home game for the Jamestown Red Raiders varsity football team as they play the Orchard Park Quakers at Strider Field for Friday Night Lights. We have made a slight adjustment to the overall temperatures through the game.
We don’t think it will be as chilly with temps in the lower 40’s as the game starts, down to the upper 30’s as the fourth quarter rolls around. Otherwise, the forecast remains unchanged with clouds clearing out through the game.
The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a Frost Advisory for Chautauqua County, going into effect midnight tonight and running through 9 a.m. Saturday morning. With clearing skies overnight, temperatures will slip back into the lower to mid 30’s, allowing some patchy frost to develop across inland areas. This will likely end the growing season across the Western Southern Tier.
While there will be the potential for frost in Cattaraugus County as well, the Weather Service will not be issuing any more frost or freeze warnings for the year for Catt. County as the previous frost ended the growing season there.
A nice High pressure ridge moves in for the weekend, leading to partly to mostly sunny afternoons both Saturday and Sunday with above average temperatures in the lower 60’s.
Our attention will turn to next week as another Cold front will likely move through the region on Tuesday. Some indications suggest this could be another soaking rain type of event. That is not a definite at this point and we will know more information as we get closer.
The front will cause a drop in temperatures for both Wednesday and Thursday, brining us back to a more seasonal feel by the end of next week.
