Scattered Storms This Afternoon, A Mainly Dry Weekend Ahead Of A Cool Down

JAMESTOWN – Another cloudy day is on tap for our Friday with rain and thunderstorm chances increasing this afternoon.
The Storm Prediction Center has outlined the extreme eastern portion of the Southern Tier under a less-than-average Marginal Risk (1/5) for severe convection this afternoon and evening.

With the activity being scattered in nature and popping up throughout the afternoon, we cannot give you an exact timing window for the storms this afternoon. The main threats from any stronger storms will be from gusty winds and heavy rainfall.

The rain will linger into Saturday morning, but will all clear out of the area by the afternoon, so we’re calling it a partly sunny day. That dry weather will continue through Sunday and Monday well. The humidity will also come down to a more comfortable level.
Temperatures will be below average by mid next week with some rain chances creeping back into the picture once again.
