(WSYR-TV, Syracuse) Just a quick note to say things are holding firm on our quiet weekend across the area. 3 weeks to Christmas, so lots of folks will be out and about for holiday parties, shopping, etc. I'm actually thinking of getting another round of golf in. We'll see how that pans out.
We've got a cold front coming through here midday Friday. This front is coming from our north and west, and really doesn't have much moisture with it. There will probably be enough moisture so that a rain or wet snow shower is possible through the middle and latter part of the day. With temperatures in the low 40s, we'll be too warm to see much, if any accumulation. I wouldn't be surprised to see the winds get a little gusty in the afternoon as the cold front and some precipitation moves through. The upper level jet stream energy is fairly potent.
Skies will clear out Friday evening, not too long after the precipitation ends. We'll have to keep an eye on when the clouds break up and when temperatures drop below freezing. It's possible that if we have some wet roads around Friday evening, a few icy spots could develop. When the skies clear, temperatures will plummet. We'll wake up Saturday morning to temperatures in the upper teens to low 20s. Brrrr.
Sunshine through the day Saturday, will slowly push temperatures into the low 40s. An increasing southwest wind Sunday will bring milder temperatures our way, and we should see highs around 50. Clouds will thicken during the day Sunday. We're still working out the details on when showers move in, and right now it looks pretty close to sunset Sunday. By and large, it'll be another great weekend in CNY.
