Now that a cold front has moved to our east, central New York will be much cooler through the remainder of Friday. High temperatures likely won’t escape the 40s for most. Rain showers continue to move eastward, with drier conditions expected by later in the afternoon. Overall it will be a rather raw finish to a week that spent most of its time in the 80s.
If you’ll recall there has been much conflict as to how the weekend weather picture would shape up. Overnight, computer models have come in better agreement as to the evolution of this system. Indications are the area of low pressure will move from its current position to Cape Cod by tomorrow morning. In doing so, brisk northwest winds will circulate around the low and keep temperatures below normal for the time of year. Also, on this track much of the rain shower associated with the storm SHOULD stay east of the Syracuse area. In fact, computer models are in rather good agreement with idea that only scattered showers around Saturday and dry weather Sunday. It should be noted, if you’re travelling east toward the Lake George region or even Adirondack’s showers will be expected much of the weekend.
The best day of the holiday weekend looks to be Memorial Day itself as the area of low pressure shifts farther east. This will be the sunniest and warmest day of the 3 day holiday weekend.
The quiet, seasonable weather will continue into Tuesday but it looks like another push of very warm and humid air will be headed our way for the middle and latter part of next week as temperatures will head back into the 80s. We wouldn’t even rule out a day or two near 90 degrees before May comes to an end.
