One More Nice Day Before Thundershowers Move In For The Weekend

JAMESTOWN – Although a Cold front passed through the region this morning, the temperatures are still right around average with nice sunshine.
Another front to our South with embedded tropical moisture has been throwing rain across the south and mid-Atlantic states for the past several days. A Canadian High has been keeping a lot of the rain at bay, and away from Western New York. However, that High pressure will scoot on out and allow the front to move towards the region over the weekend.
The NOAA Storm Prediction Center has outlined much of Chautauqua County under a less-than-average “Marginal” Risk (1/5) for severe thunderstorms on Saturday. While I honestly do not expect any severe weather tomorrow, the potential exists for one, maybe two, elevated-type thunderstorms with brief gusty winds.
The rain on Saturday will also be more widespread in nature during the morning hours, but scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon.
The temperatures won’t make it into the 70s, but we will still be nearing averages in the mid to upper 60s. 
The rain will continue in pockets on Sunday and Monday, but we’ll finally regain some dry time by mid next week, with temperatures back into the 70s once again.
