Now that a cold front has swung though the area, the string of unseasonably warm days has come to an end. Fall-like air is settling in, being imported from the northwest. As cooler air travels over the relatively warm Great Lakes (Lake Ontario is in the mid 70s still) it acts as a sponge and soaks up moisture- then dropping it as lake effect rain. A few showers are possible through the early part of the day, although not everyone will see them.
High pressure makes a comeback for Sunday. While a few early morning showers are a possibility, they majority of Sunday will be sunny and dry with temperatures rising only towards 70°. We expect that Sunday will be a fantastic day to get out and about, since the weather will be perfectly pleasant for most!
Early next week warmer weather will try to return to central New York but this time we won’t be able to climb back into the 80s. Instead, 70s will have to do for Monday and Tuesday. By Tuesday the next cold front will approach from the west with some showers and thunderstorms followed by cooler weather for the end of next week.
