April showers will be recurrent theme over next week

On the bright side, it will be relatively warmer over the next several days.

But wet.

Several rounds of rain showers associated with passing storm systems are forecast this week starting this afternoon, the National Weather Service forecasts.

Today is expected to start out mostly cloudy with increasing chances for precipitation by early afternoon, forecasts show.

Rain could be mixed with snow showers later in the afternoon. Today's high is forecast to be in the low 40s.

Gusty southwest winds are forecast in the afternoon with gusts over 30 mph. That will make it feel like its in the upper 20s.

Chances for showers continue tonight with an overnight low near 40 degrees, the weather service said.

Forecasters said more rain is expected Thursday with up to one-quarter inch possible. Breezy southwest winds are expected to pick up again, gusting to near 30 mph.

Thursday's high temperature is forecast to be near 50 degrees.

Chances for showers remain in the forecast for Friday, Saturday and Sunday too, increasing in likelihood each day, the weather service said.

Temperatures are forecast to be near 50 degrees on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

A warm frontal boundary is expected to push into Western New York, but might not make it far enough north to bring the significant warmup that was initially forecast.

Areas farther to the south could be warmer, forecasts show.

Temperatures in Jamestown, for instance, are expected to push near 70 degrees on Friday and remain in the low 60s on Saturday, forecasts show.
