Summer Is Making One Last Run Before Fall Air Returns

JAMESTOWN – The calendar may read “October” but Mother Nature seems stuck in August. Summer has returned for one last breath for much fo the week.
While most computer model guidance has not picked up any much if any rain for the afternoon hours today, the potential does exist for a couple widely spaced and or isolated showers and storms late this afternoon. However, the majority of the day should be dry.
Temps warm into the 80s for Tuesday and Wednesday which will be nearly 20 degrees above average. The record high for Tuesday is 86 set in 2007. I think we’ll be a few degrees shy of that. However, the record for Wednesday is 79 set in 2003. That record could be in jeopardy as our forecasted High is 80.
The next best chance of rain comes Wednesday night through Thursday with another front moving through. The front will be dragging colder air behind it, knocking us back to a much more seasonable feeling. for late week.
We could be in store for our first frosts of the season Saturday morning and Sunday morning with lows bottoming out in the upper 30s. We’re close to the average date of the first frost so the growing season is coming to close. Cover your tender vegetation and bring them inside.
