A boundary between cool air to our north and warm air to our south is draped right over central New York, but by the afternoon it will start heading north and allow the warm southerly air to flow in. This will do a few things. First of all, moisture associated with the boundary will start to lift, bringing the clouds with it. This will allow sunshine to come out in abundance, helping to increase the temperatures. Also, those brisk southwest winds should push temperatures to near or even above 70°. The record for today is 72 set back in 2002 and we will challenge it.
The warm weather looks to be a two day affair for central New York. While we warm into the 60s on Monday, a cold front will approach us from the west. This front will sweep from west to east across the region Monday night with showers and even some thunder along with a gusty breeze. In the wake of the front, cooler air will move back in for Tuesday. In fact, any rain showers will change to snow showers.
We could see some leftover flurries on Wednesday morning, but as of now the chances for that are slim. High pressure will already be building in and helping to dry out our air. Even though temperatures will be cool to seasonable through the end of the week, we should see a lot of dry time and even a good amount of sunshine.
