Colder This Afternoon, Then Milder Beyond
High pressure stretches from north of Lake Huron southwest to mid and lower Mississippi Valley region. Over the next few days, high pressure will remain in control as it strengthens and takes up residence over the Northeast by Friday morning.
Absent chilly temperatures today and some flurries or scattered snow showers today and perhaps some minor lake effect snow showers well north of Syracuse tonight and tomorrow, the rest of the work week looks rather quiet and even relatively mild. More specifically, with high pressure in control tomorrow through Friday, the jet stream winds (river of air aloft) will shift back north into Canada and that will allow for mild Pacific air to move east across the country. While 70 degree weather is not in the cards (like last week) the mid 40s we have in the forecast are almost 10 degrees above normal for this point in the season.
A weak cold front will try to move through Central New York either later Friday or Friday night. It won’t cause much weather around here but it may cool us just a touch to start the weekend. The next significant weather system that may impact the region is headed east toward us for Sunday and Monday. There is still a bit of uncertainty as to the track of the storm system and that would impact whether we get rain or wet snow. We’ll keep you posted.
