A low pressure system will be advancing northward into Central New York today. After bright sunshine to start the day, clouds will begin to increase by the midday hours, a little sooner south and later north. During the afternoon, showers and thunderstorms will be developing, but they will be scattered in nature. This means that not everyone will get hit, but you should take an umbrella with you today just in case one of those thunderstorms heads your way.
A cold front will be approaching from the west on Tuesday, and this will spawn a few more showers and thunderstorms. The chance of rain is higher for Tuesday than it is today due to the cold frontal passage. With the clouds and a higher likelihood of rain, temperatures will be held in the mid to upper 70s.
Tropical Storm Alberto formed off the South Carolina coast on Saturday and is forecast to move slowly toward the northeast and weaken by the middle of week. It will likely not impact our area, but we will be keeping a close eye on this system.
High pressure will take over by the end of the work week, warming temperatures back up into the 80s. Memorial Day Weekend looks to be warm all three days with just a small chance of a thunderstorm on Saturday. It looks like it will be a good weekend for Central New Yorkers to head to the beaches and kick off the unofficial beginning to summer! Even though our 7 day forecast currently shows temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s, some computer models are hinting at warmer temperatures approaching the upper 80s or higher, especially later in the holiday weekend.
