Another round of significant wet weather could be on tap for CNY

Storm Team Headlines

After receiving some welcomed rain the last few days across Central New York, we are not expecting too much rain through the weekend. Later Sunday night into early next week however, it looks like another wet system could impact the region.

What is the cause the for the wetter pattern at times over CNY and the Northeast?

You can thank the jet stream for the healthy watering recently. The jet stream has become more active and the location of it has been pretty close to, if not over us the last few days and more of the same is expected to start next week.

You can see in the graphic below displaying the jet stream winds aloft coming from the Southwest which should help import moisture off the Pacific right into CNY and the Northeast. When the jet stream winds are close to or over your area, you typically are going to see a more active/stormy pattern evolve. This is great news for the drought situation across the region that certainly is being remedied at least somewhat with these shots of rain.

The 6 to 10 day precipitation outlook for the U.S. to round out October below shows that the odds of seeing above average precipitation in the Northeast and Eastern Great Lakes are pretty good.
