Not feeling very spring-like for the first day of Spring

Even colder air on the way by mid-week



- Spring officially began this morning at 6:29AM.
- Chilly today, highs around 40 today.
- Cloudy, even a little hazy at times today.

- Staying mainly dry for the first day of spring.
- A few rain showers and flurries possible overnight.
- Another shot of cold air arrives for the middle of the week.
- Temperature trend into much of the upcoming week is expected to remain below average.

Spring arrives with winter on its mind:

Spring officially began this morning at 6:29am! Mother Nature may not realize that however. Much of this upcoming week is still forecast to stay below normal temperature-wise.

We have what’s call inversion over central New York, which is basically when moisture is trapped in the lower levels of the atmosphere with much drier air aloft. This low level moisture is making things look a little hazy and cloudy. With little to no wind, the drier air has a hard time “mixing” down to the surface. So, clouds will rule the sky with some bright spots today.

A weak system will bring the chance for a few rain/snow showers tonight into tomorrow morning. Winds out of the north/northwest will start to pick up on Tuesday and continue into Wednesday.

Another cold, winter blast:

In addition to the gusty winds, another temporary push of cold air and some lake effect snow showers will move in for Wednesday (which I’m sure many will agree we hope this is our last cold blast of the season).

At times it will feel about zero degrees with the wind chill, so don’t put those winter coats and winter gear away just yet.

Easing out of the cold for the weekend:

Thursday will be sunny and not as cold as Wednesday, but still chilly for this time of year. Clouds and some rain showers that may begin as snow or a mix is possible Friday as a warm front lifts north close to Syracuse. Temperatures on Friday and Saturday will be more seasonable.
