A bit of leftover moisture is with us through the morning, creating foggy conditions and overcast skies in central New York. Winds will pick up a bit and shift into the northwest, helping to push those clouds out and burn off the fog. With nearly full sunshine, temperatures should warm into the mid and even high 80s for some this afternoon. We stay dry straight through the day, so any outdoor activities that may have been postponed today due to the rain won’t be hindered by the weather during the second half of the weekend.
Heat continues to build into Monday as we approach 90° yet again. While some of our computer models suggest that Monday will stay dry, one reliable model continues to introduce the chance for an afternoon thunderstorm. We’re anticipating a good amount of moisture in the atmosphere, and with a strong breeze coming off of Lake Ontario, a shower or thunderstorm is not entirely out of the question. Tuesday looks like a better bet for rain though as a series of disturbances begin to approach central New York through the middle and end of the work week.
