The weather maker we’re watching for the start of the week is a low pressure system that’s currently spinning over southern Canada after moving through the northern Great Lakes last night. A cold front extends southeast from the low and will pass through central New York during the middle of the day. Once the front passes, cooler air works in again briefly as our temperatures later in the day drop into the 50s. We expect a few showers tonight and early Tuesday, thanks in part to Lake Ontario and the cooler air passing over the lake on west-northwesterly winds.
The cool air won’t be with us too long, however, as another push of mild air heads back into central New York for Wednesday. We could be close to 70 again. This warmth precedes the next system approaching us later Thursday and Friday with some showers.
As of right now, the weekend looks to be unsettled. Our models are in a bit of disagreement as to timing of rain that is going to pass through, but it does look as through temperatures will be back down to the lower 60s, which is not too far off from what is normal.
