The weather maker this weekend is a low pressure system that is skimming by from our west to our north. It’s just within arms reach and is able to pop up a few showers in central New York through the remainder of tonight. As we start to see the back side of the storm system, winds shift out of the west/northwest and pick up in speed. As the moist air glides over Lake Ontario, enhanced showers will develop to the east and southeast of the Lake. These showers should stick around through midday Sunday.
For the rest of CNY, a few showers are possible with a cloudy start to Sunday. Sunshine will increase through the afternoon. 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. From there, we’re watching an upper level boundary that will approach on Tuesday, bringing some heavy showers at times, but overall we’re not expecting a washout of a day. That is the theme for much of the work week in fact- there are several chances for showers, but the rain isn’t forecast to last all day long.
