An approaching cold front has had the nation divided, with the east coast experiencing unusual warmth while the west has been under an arctic chill. Today will be the warmest for most near central New York as that cold front will pass through tonight, bringing colder air to start the work week.
We’re expecting that rain showers will be around, ahead of the nearing frontal boundary. It looks like most of the day will feature occasional light rain showers with an increase in activity after the sun sets. In addition to the rain, winds will pick up as well. We’re expecting southwest gusts upwards of 25mph possible through the afternoon, increasing into the evening. These winds will help keep us mild though. In fact, Sunday should be the warmer day of the weekend with highs in the mid 50s.
Looking into early next week, cooler weather is scheduled to arrive early next week behind Sunday’s frontal passage. As a result, we expect high temperatures return to levels that are closer to reality for this time of year with generally dry weather expected. Even farther down the pike, there are indications that sharply colder weather may try and move back into the region later next week and beyond. However, that is many days away and things may change.
