(WSYR-TV, Syracuse) After a couple of days with temperatures in the 70s, a change is in store for central New York this weekend. We continue to track a cold front moving through central New York tonight. The front is the leading edge of a cooler air mass that will build in for the weekend. An area of steady rain is streaking northeast into western New York behind the front. This rain that will move over central New York late Friday night and early Saturday after the front passes through the region.
The wettest part of the day today will be in the morning. By the time the rain tapers to spotty showers or drizzle during the middle of the day rainfall totals of .50” to .75” will be common across central New York.
There may be enough dry air moving in during the afternoon causing some breaks to sunshine late in the day. In spite of the sun, it will be much cooler tomorrow with highs only in the upper 50s, not 70s.
