As skies clear tonight, temperatures will drop into the 20s. A record low of 28 is possible in Syracuse, which will end the growing season across the area. We’ve been watching much drier air build southward into our area through Friday afternoon, increasing our confidence that temperatures will plummet into the 20s.
There should be a good deal of sun to start the day Saturday. High pressure right over us Saturday morning, will slide to our east during the day, causing winds to turn into the southwest. As that high moves to our east, clouds will begin to advance from the west, and by mid afternoon, we expect cloudy skies. Whether it’s late in the daylight hours, or just after sunset, rain will overspread our area.
Rain will continue Saturday night. As a strong area of low pressure moves into Michigan Sunday, the heaviest rain will likely slide just north of CNY. Strong south winds of 30+ mph will push temperatures into the 60s to near 70. While there will be some showers around, there should be some rain-free time through the day Sunday as well.
