A cold front is entering western New York as of early afternoon and will continue to move east. As it does, it will help push the steadiest rain east of central New York later this afternoon. In spite of there being less rain falling from the sky, it will still be damp from the inch plus rain that fell since last night.
There is some drying air moving in from the west that will try to overspread central New York. The problem will be all the moisture leftover in the lower atmosphere from today's rain. We think that, along with light winds, is a recipe for some fog later tonight and early tomorrow.
With the front to our east tomorrow, cooler and somewhat drier air should be allowed to move into the region resulting in some breaks of sun once we burn off tonight's fog. The limited sun combined with low pressure in the upper atmosphere should help fuel scattered showers or thunderstorms. More improvement is likely Thursday, but we'll still be at risk for spotty showers. Friday should feature plenty of sunshine and seasonable temperatures. We hope to return to the 70s this weekend, although there may be a few spotty showers on Mother's Day, however overall, the weekend at this point is looking pretty good.
