The combination of high pressure and a southwest breeze will push temperatures into the lower 50s. However, a cold front will close in on the region tonight bringing clouds overnight and into tomorrow morning.
Once the front passes later in the morning, cooler air will arrive and keep temperatures below 50. High pressure will build into the region for Saturday and supply the region with a dry and seasonably cool day, though clouds may tend to gain the upper hand later in the day.
Thereafter, our weather becomes more unsettled for the end of the weekend and early next week. A series of low pressure systems will track through the middle of the country northeast toward Central New York. While the air ahead of these systems will be relatively mild, our chances for rain showers will also increase.
After Monday, there are some question marks in the forecast. In the wake of the second area of low pressure, a front will move through Central New York and whether that front stays south or north of the region will determine our weather in the Tuesday-Wednesday time frame, more specifically our temperature. Right now, the consensus from most (but not all) of our computer models is that the front will stay just to our south keeping our temperatures near or just below normal. It should be noted, if Central New York were on the “warm” side of the front then we could have high temperatures in the 60s or 70s! Again, there is still uncertainty with this part of the forecast so make sure to check back over the next few days.
