JAMESTOWN – A quiet weather pattern is settling in this week, which means nice and dry days, but it will still be cold.
Temperatures will ride between 5 and 10 degrees below average for the next seven, but at least any snow stays away for now.
The weekend looks to paint a few scattered snow showers around Western New York, but early indications show this will be insignificant.
Although spring “officially” begins tomorrow afternoon at 12:15 PM, there is no signs of spring-like weather anytime in the foreseeable future.
Computer model guidance suggests this winter-time pattern will be around for quite some time to come, with hints that we may start April colder than average.
So, if you’re looking for spring, you’ll just have to keep looking, I’m afraid.
