After a more seasonable temperature day Wednesday and Thursday, temperatures are expected to climb to about 5 to 10 degrees above average for the most part over the next several days! By the way, the average high is in the low 70s through the last day of summer in Syracuse.
Why the warmer than average temperatures across Central New York for the last official several days of summer? Jet stream winds aloft are expected to shift farther north late this week overall right into early to mid next week. This will allow unseasonably warm and at times muggy air to move north into the Northeast.
High temperatures should make it well into the 70s to low 80s right into at least Wednesday, or when the calendar changes from summer to fall officially! The fall season officially begins Wednesday afternoon, September 22nd at 3:21.
Any signs of some fall air moving into CNY late next week, or beyond?? At this point, some of the long range computer data is suggesting that it should cool down significantly for the last half of next week anyway as we usher the first couple of days of the fall season in. The average high late next week into the last weekend of September is in the upper 60s.
Hang in there fall weather lovers. Before we know it, the jackets/fleeces/flannels will be needed once again, and the first frost will take care of all those mosquitos biting us out and about too.
