(WSYR-TV, Syracuse) After reaching 73° today, breaking the old record of 72° set in 2002, we are looking at another day of uncharacteristically warm November weather. Highs tomorrow should approach 70° yet again, rivaling the record high of 71° set in 1964.
The cause of this unusual weather is a warm front that has lifted to our north, ushering warmer air from the south. We’re keeping an eye on a cold front that will be inching its way towards us on Monday. As it does, winds will increase from the south. Wind advisories have been put in place for Monday afternoon and night for Jefferson and Lewis Counties, where gusts could reach 50mph. This could cause localized to scattered power outages. Elsewhere in central New York, gusts up to 30 mph are possible.
Rain arrives Monday night and will change over to snow by Tuesday morning. High pressure quickly builds in and quiets and cools our weather for the remainder of the work week.
