High pressure is slowly shifting off the East tonight. That is allowing high clouds to quickly overspread central New York. Those clouds will actually help slow our temperature drop overnight.
By Friday morning, we’ll be watching a frontal boundary stretching from the southern Great Lakes and just to our south. The winds ahead of this front will turn into the south and even more moisture will return to central New York. 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 (perhaps with some limited sun) early Sunday as a cold front drops to our south, 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 of the next storm to our west and northwest, even warmer air will likely surge back into the region Monday on strong southerly winds. This will likely be the warmest day over the next seven but not in the territory of the 70 degree weather from earlier this week. By later Monday, a cold front will move through central New York and that will drop our temperatures for the middle of next week.
