Today will look very similar to yesterday with only a few minor differences. For one thing, we’ll have a breeze. While winds were practically nonexistent on Saturday, air has started to flow in from the south and will continue to blow at around 10-20 mph throughout Father’s Day. That southerly wind is also responsible for a touch of an increase in warmth this afternoon. We should top out in the mid 80s with dewpoints (or the temperature that water will condense at) in the mid 50s. The day should have a pleasantly comfortable feel.
An approaching cold front will be knocking on our door late on tonight. For now it looks like clouds may build from west to east with showers possible tonight into Monday morning. If you’re looking for a good downpour, you’ll have to head west. Rain chances are only slight in central New York and showers will be scattered. There’s also a possibility for a rumble of thunder with any shower that does pop up. That front should skim by to our north, keepings us warm.
By early next week we will be back up close to 90 degrees and should be in that territory for at least several days. It now looks like those scattered storms could continue with the threat into Tuesday but we have to be honest, the chances at this point don’t look to be all that great. In fact, there are signs that high pressure will try to re-strengthen over us Thursday (the first full day of Summer) as temperatures take a shot at low 90s. For many, the next best chance for showers and storms may to come until Friday as a cold front approaches central New York.
