Clouds remain stubborn into Friday

<B>(Thursday Evening March 28, 2013)</B> Skies will turn out mostly cloudy tonight with a few snow showers. What’s in store for tomorrow? More of the same. We’re looking at mainly cloudy conditions with a few rain/snow showers. The pattern should break by the weekend with skies becoming mostly sunny on Saturday.
The weather pattern remains in a holding pattern here in central New York for the next 24 to 36 hours.  We are still keying in on low pressure out in the Canadian Maritimes.  This storm continues to circulate seasonably cool and moist air back over us.  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 Friday night.  Besides this spotty precipitation, there should be plenty of clouds with some breaks from time to time.

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.
