A cold front moved through central New York last night bringing an end to our Indian Summer weather. With Central New York solidly behind the cold front, brisk northwest winds will import sharply cooler air into the region. The colder air moving over Lake Ontario coupled with some energy in the upper levels of the atmosphere will induce scattered showers of rain or snow into the afternoon.
Other than the threat for some lake effect flurries west of Syracuse/I-81 tonight, Central New York will begin a rather lengthy period of dry weather as high pressure remains in control while moving into southeast Canada. In short, for the next several days, expect fairly sunny and seasonably cool days along with mainly clear and chilly nights.
It should be noted that this extended period of dry and rather sunny weather is quite unusual for this time of year as November is typically the, of one of the, cloudiest months of the year in Central New York. Also, we think daytime high temperatures will gradually moderate with each successive day tomorrow through to Sunday.
