Heat And Humidity Will Make A Return This Weekend

JAMESTOWN – The month maybe changing but the mid summer-like feel will not be going away anytime soon.
An area of High Pressure now centered over Maine will continue to scoot out over the next 24 to 48 hours, which will allow a front to our south to move northward towards our region.
While we believe the actual front will not cross through Western New York, a little bit of the front’s moisture will come our way and maybe trigger off a few widely scattered to isolated showers well eastward this afternoon.
Looking into the weekend, the Jet Stream will begin to pull Northward, allowing the heat and humidity to make a return into the Holliday week. This will likely be another stretch of hazy, hot and humid weather.
Labor Day Forecast: Monday is a toss-up between sunshine and a few afternoon showers and storms due to some disagreements with the computer modeling. Because of this, I’ve lowered the rain chances to 20%. I’m leaning towards a mostly dry day with maybe a passing shower during the afternoon. It will be very humid and quite warm, with temp ranges between 80 and 87. The coolest spots will likely be found right at the Lake Erie shoreline due to a wind coming from the southwest across the lake.
