Forecast Discussion

 Partly conditions persist across central New York this morning as southerly winds have begun to create a thin altostratus layer across the area. Temperatures should get into the upper 50's today via the southerly winds, despite the cloud cover. High pressure will slowly move out of the region and the next disturbance will move into the area overnight tonight. This will bring cloudy skies, with perhaps a rain or snow shower overnight tonight; expecting tonight to remain dry though.

Saturday sees quite similar weather to yesterday, with a cold start but mostly sunny skies helping it to feel a bit warmer. Conditions remain clear and sunny on Sunday, with temperatures reaching into the 60's. Saturday and Sunday night will be cool but will remain mostly clear, optimal times to view the Lyrids meteor shower, despite the cool conditions.

Monday we see cloud cover return as the next system approaches.  Tuesday will see a chance of rain, perhaps another line of heavy rain associated with a cold front.  After Tuesday, things clear out and we return to clear skies and seasonable weather (perhaps slightly above average) with temperatures in the upper 50's and lower 60's.
