BUFFALO, N.Y. — Rain showers are moving through the region Sunday night, with some pockets of heavy rain possible, especially in the Southern Tier.
Areas such as Olean, Ellicottville, Jamestown, and Wellsville will pick up the most rain from this system from Sunday night into early Monday morning.
Rain will impact part of the morning commute with temperatures. This low pressure system is packed with moisture, and a warm front will slowly push its way through Western New York. This will send temperatures on Monday up to the upper 50s and even near 60 degrees.
The rain will be steadiest during the morning, and then there will be a period of dry time on Monday during the late morning and into the afternoon. Rain showers will make a return, in a more scattered fashion, by Monday afternoon, with a few heavy downpours possible.
Another round of rain is expected on Monday evening, which will last into Tuesday. Western New York should receive 1 to 2 inches of rain form this system if current projections hold.
As we head into the day on Tuesday, it will be the coolest of the next seven with temperatures struggling to get into the low 50s. A respite from showers is expected Wednesday and Thursday, with seasonal temperatures. Then, rain returns, with the next weather system moving in late Thursday night.
