The main weather feature we’re watching tonight is a large area of low pressure over the Midwest. As this storm spins around, spokes of energy and moisture circulate our way. There is a wedge of dry air that has moved over us, and it looks like that will be over us through a good chunk of tonight. While a brief shower can’t be ruled out, most of tonight should end up rain-free.
There isn’t a whole lot of change in the weather heading into Saturday. The storm mentioned above will move a bit farther east, which should move the dry slot over us eastward, and we’ll end up with mostly cloudy skies, after some morning sun. A few showers are likely in the afternoon as well. Winds will be light from the west-southwest.
By Sunday, the storm will take up a position to our northeast. This will turn winds into the northwest, drawing in cooler air. As that cool air crosses Lake Ontario, more persistent showers are likely east of Lake Ontario Sunday. For the rest of CNY, there will be a few showers and a cloudy start to Sunday. Some breaks of sun are possible late in the day Sunday. It will certainly be a windier day Sunday, with northwest winds of 15 to 30 mph possible.
High pressure settling over us Monday will bring sunshine, mild temperatures and lighter winds for the start of the work and school week.
