Winds coming in from the west/northwest this afternoon kept us a touch cooler than we’ve been for the past several days and we’re looking to hold steady in the low to mid 80s through Monday.
Most of central New York is expected to stay dry with a few clouds through Monday afternoon. However, an upper level trough well to our northeast is allowing showers and storms to pop up in the North Country. This trend should continue through Monday evening. Additionally, we’re watching energy well to the south, which could trigger additional pop up showers in the southern tier of New York.
Changes begin to take place on Tuesday. Winds shift into the southwest as a warm front grazes by. Heat and humidity ride into central New York, making for a soupy feeling day. From there, a cold front approaches the area, which will be primed with heat and moisture. There is some uncertainty within the computer models as to how this situation will play out. Some scenarios indicate the potential for severe weather on the Fourth of July, while others show just a few passing showers. As of right now, it’s looking like any activity will take place early in the day. We will continue to monitor the outlook and keep you updated here.
