High pressure stretching from southeast Canada all the way back into the Ohio Valley will control the weather in central New York the next couple of days. As that area of high pressure settles to our southeast Tuesday and Wednesday, southwest winds will overspread our area, keeping afternoon highs on the mild side.
Temperatures will continue to warm on the heels of brisk west to southwest winds. We may see a slight cool down Thursday as a weak cold front is forecast to move through the region. Still, temperatures are forecast to remain well above average. And while we have it dry in the forecast Thursday, we’ll need to watch for the possibility for a small chance of spotty showers.
It will really begin to warm-up Friday and for the weekend as high pressure becomes remains established to our south and a series of storm systems tracks to our northwest. This set up favors unseasonably warm temperatures for the Northeast and we feel highs will approach or possibly exceed 50 Friday through Sunday. Along with the warmer air, will be an increase threat for showers, particularly Friday and Sunday.
