Steady as she goes weather-wise here in Syracuse the next few days. There will only be a few subtle things going on into the weekend that will impact our weather.
There is actually a weak cold front moving east across southern Canada. This front will ‘wash out’ close to central New York tomorrow. The only noticeable feature ahead of this front will be some high altitude clouds that will move over our sky later tonight and early tomorrow. Our sky tomorrow morning should look similar to this morning with some filtered sunshine.
The front that is falling apart is actually at the leading edge to a new (and reinforcing) dry and seasonably cool air mass. The center of this air mass, high pressure will almost be right over central New York during the upcoming weekend so we are in store for plenty of sunshine Saturday, Sunday and mostly likely Monday as well. This stagnant pattern will also mean very light winds for us. The November sun is not that strong (we are about a month away from the winter solstice) but still the air over us will gradually warm and end up in the 50s for Sunday and Monday.
It still appears that a storm system lurking along the East Coast early next week will stay far enough east to be a non-issue for us. It is very conceivable we could go a full week here in Central New York without any precipitation. Good news if you have holiday travel plans as the early outlook calls for dry and quiet weather next Wednesday. Our next weather maker looks like a cold front approaching us from the north Thanksgiving Day. This front will be starved for moisture so we aren’t impressed with are chances for rain.
