Wet to start, then some afternoon clearing

<B>(Saturday October 6, 2012)</B>Steady rain, mainly on the light side, will be with us through the early part of the day. Showers end and we could even see a bit of sunshine this afternoon with temperatures reaching the mid to high 50s.
A cold front moving through has a steady batch of showers trailing behind it. The rain is moving at a good pace, and is only expected to stick around for a few hours. Even though it won’t be wet all day, Syracuse could easily pick up a half inch of rain with some isolated higher totals. A few scattered showers are possible in the late afternoon, although most should be dry by that point.We wouldn’t be surprised if there is some sun late in the day but it will still be cooler than the past few days.

Low pressure is still advertised to develop over the Mid-Atlantic region Sunday.  Indications are that the bulk of the rain associated with storm system should stay to our southeast.  However, light showers are distinctly possible or even some lake effect rain showers.  Consequently, we’ve kept the threat for showers in the forecast Sunday. 

Once the low heads out to sea, a large area of high pressure will build in and that will control our weather for the early part of next week.  In fact, much of the region may see their first widespread frost Monday morning.  Once the high moves off the East Coast winds will turn into the south and our temperatures will start to moderate Tuesday and Wednesday.
