Clouds increase today, rain tonight

<B>(Thursday Morning June 27, 2013)</B>Other than some fog early in the day, we will start Thursday with sunshine. Clouds will increase during the middle of the day with a shower or thunderstorm possible by late in the day. We are likely to have a period of steady rain tonight and it could come down hard at times. A flood watch is up for all of central New York through early Friday.
Flood Watch in effect for CNY into midday Friday

A small bubble of high pressure nosing south from Canada, will keep the weather quiet into the first half of Thursday.  The only issue early in the day will be some fog.  With the rain over the last few days, the lower atmosphere is rather moist.  Outside the fog there will be a decent amount of sun

While we’re enjoying a break from the rain, an area of low pressure will head our way from lower Michigan Thursday.  As this system gets closer to us, clouds will thicken over us, with a few showers possible late Thursday.  We should see enough sun Thursday to cause our temperatures to warm to near 85 degrees.

The potential track of that low pressure area mentioned above, will have a BIG impact on the potential rainfall over us Thursday night.  As of late Wednesday, there is a wide array of solutions for CNY.  Anywhere from a tenth of an inch of rain, to 1-3” of rain.  With the dynamics in the atmosphere coming together over us, a very moisture rich atmosphere over us, and the very wet ground from a rainy June this needs to be watched closely.  The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for all of CNY for Thursday night and Friday morning.

Behind this low pressure area, winds will shift into the northwest Friday and cooler and less humid air will briefly build over us for the start of the weekend.
