Dry And Cool Finish To The Workweek; Big Time Humidity Returns For Next Week

JAMESTOWN – The weather across Western New York has settled into a more calmer pattern tor round out this week. However, the heat and humidity will rebuild as we go into the weekend into early next week.
A big juicy High pressure area parked just south of Chicago has cleared the skies across much of the Northeast. That Hiugh won’t move much over the next 24 to 48 hours, so sunny skies will continue for our Friday.
As we head into the weekend, the High will slowly begin to fade away as the Jet Stream begins to pull back north, allowing for heat and humidity to make a return into Western New York.
Dew Points will slowly begin to rise through the 60s and 70s through this time period. When you’re dealing with that humidity, the chances of rain will definitely go up with the excess moisture in the air. However, these will be the typical widely scattered showers and storms. Not a single day will be total washout by any means, but a passing storm from time to time is a possibility.
