Roller Coaster-Like Temperatures Over The Next Several Days

JAMESTOWN – Mother Nature will be giving Western New Yorkers her own whiplash as temps swing up and down over the next few days.
The widespread rain we had this morning has been moving out from west to east today. Behind that, the chance for a scattered shower is still possible through the afternoon before some peaks of sun try to poke out of the clouds late in the day.
After the passage of a Cold front tonight, Friday will be mainly dry but cool with most areas making only into the lower 60s. A few spots especially on the hills may stay in the 50s all day.
A southernly flow aloft begins to set up over the weekend, taking temps back into the 70s for the weekend. We’ve officially put 80 in the forecast for Columbus Day, which would be 17 degrees above average if we hit that (the normal high is around 64, 63 degrees).
We continue that mild stretch into mid next week with a small chance for a spotty shower each day.
