High pressure centered over the northeast helps to keep us calm and chilly for the rest of the daylight hours. The high will slide off the New England coast though, and by tonight more clouds should cover central New York.
By Friday morning, we’ll be watching a frontal boundary stretching from the southern Great Lakes and just to our south. Showers should develop in the afternoon, mainly south of Syracuse. The cold front should be right on our doorstep late Friday night, allowing scattered showers to spread from south to north by Saturday morning.
All of the showers we are discussing will be in the form of rain. Temperatures over the weekend will be feeling milder yet again- back into the mid 40s and even near 50 on Saturday. Indications are we may catch a break with perhaps some limited sun early Sunday, before a stronger storm moving from he Plain States to the north-central Great Lakes results in afternoon showers Sunday and possibly steadier rain (and wind) Monday.
With the storm track to our west and northwest, even warmer air will likely surge back into the region Monday. Colder air will likely arrive Tuesday after the passage of the associated cold front.
