It looks like our bout of unusually warm weather will be coming to an end shortly. A cold front is heading east from the Great Lakes and it’s the leading edge to a much cooler air mass. Before the front moves into central New York this evening, our temperatures will remain mild. We still have a shot at the record high of 71 set in 1964.
Along and ahead of the cold front, will likely be a large area of rain showers this evening. Immediately along the cold front, it’s possible that there may be some squally type showers (locally stronger wind gusts associated with heavier downpours) early to mid evening. Showers will likely persist overnight as temperatures drop into the 30s by sunrise tomorrow. In fact, the air may become sufficiently cold enough so that wet snow to fall by morning, especially over higher elevations.
Scattered lake effect rain and snow showers will be with us tomorrow as high temperatures will be nearly 30 degrees colder than today! Thereafter, chilly but dry weather is anticipated for the rest of the work week. The outlook for the weekend suggests moderating temperatures along with a continuation of dry weather.
