Low pressure in the Canadian Maritimes continues to circulate seasonably cool and moist air back over Central New York. There isn’t much in the atmosphere to turn the moisture into precipitation but we can’t rule out a few rain or snow showers through tonight. Besides this spotty precipitation, there should be peeks of sun between the clouds once we hit midday, with more sun later today.
Our weather will start to break for the start of the weekend. First, that low pressure system will weaken and head east farther into the Atlantic. In the meantime, high pressure and drier air will build in from the west. As that happens, we expect increasing amounts of sunshine Saturday with temperatures right about where they should be for the end of March. Unfortunately, this break in the weather won’t last long.
The next frontal system will bear down on Central New York for Easter Sunday. This system will spread clouds in during the morning and it still looks like we get into some rain for the afternoon. The rain does not appear to be all that heavy. Sunday’s front is the leading edge to another shot of chilly air that will arrive for Monday.
The chilly air that returns for early next week will also be accompanied by some snow showers. Certainly not the way we were hoping that April would start. Still no signs of true, sustained spring weather for us…at least not for the next 7-10 days.
