Widespread Rain Tapering Off, Dry Finish To The Week Ahead

JAMESTOWN – After an eventful morning which even saw a surprise Tornado Warning issued for parts of the region, the weather is quieting down for the next couple of days.
A cluster of showers and thunderstorms moved through Western New York between 5 AM and 11 AM this morning.
Within that cluster, the National Weather Service in Buffalo seen enough storm rotation on radar near Rushford to warrant the issuance of a Tornado Warning at 7:30 AM for east-central Cattaraugus and northwestern Allegany Counties. The Warning was canceled at 7:47 AM as the storm weakened below severe limits.

We have not received any reports of damage from either Cattaraugus or Allegany Counties so far today but that is something we will be keep and eye on through the day.
The rain has been tapering off from west to east throughout the day but a few scattered showers and storms are still possible through the afternoon.
The sun may even try to peak out at times late this afternoon before sunset time as the clouds began to partially break before nightfall.
High Pressure builds back in for the remainder of the week, leaving us dry and a bit chilly at times.
