• Clouds, sun gradually increases late afternoon.
• 50s today, 60s for Friday and Saturday.
• Showers return on Saturday afternoon but still mild.
• A change to colder weather and snow for the end of the weekend and early next week.

We have a little bit of lingering moisture and drizzle this morning from last night’s weak cold front. The clouds will still be pretty stubborn today, but there are some thin spots as the sun chips away at the cloud cover. High pressure will slide to our south and east tonight, which will help clear the cloud cover away around sunset. Tonight will be clear, with hardly any wind.

Starting tonight and into the start of the weekend we are looking dry with a southerly flow of air.  It could be warm enough with a south wind by Friday and Saturday for us to meet or exceed 60 degrees.

Our next weather maker, a cold front, looks like it will move into central New York sooner.  As a result, we put showers in the forecast for Saturday afternoon. If you are holding off on some last minute outdoor chores you probably want to get out to do them early in the day.

Following Saturday’s cold front we are in for a decided shift to colder weather.  Signs right now point to an area of low pressure trying to form close to or over New England later in the weekend.  This would draw colder air into central New York and the entire Northeast.  The colder weather and a gusty northwest wind is pretty much a certainty. What remains uncertain, however, is how much snow we’ll see. We expect a change over from rain to snow Sunday. Beyond that a northwesterly flow over a warm Lake Ontario will mean some lake effect into Monday. Stay tuned.
