Periods of rain and
sunshine will continue for the next two days before more prolonged
precipitation occurs on Friday. Things clear out and cool down for the
weekend and look to remain mostly dry into the start of next week.
Mostly sunny conditions
dominate central New York at the moment. With the sun out temperatrues
will get quite warm during the day today. Cold front is still located
out to the west of the region, keeping us in the warm sector of this
system with sustained southerly winds. Cold will trigger storms during
the day once again today, and these storms will progress eastward
overnight. Could be looking at a thunderstorm or two overnight, but
chance of precipitation is rather low still.
Similar set up for
Thursday, with the cold front triggering storms to the west and we have
the chance of getting one fo them during the day. The front moves
closer overnight on Thursday, and into Friday morning, increasing our
chance for storms and rain in general.
Friday looking like a
prolonged period of heavy rain, up to 1.5" according to the Weather
Prediction Center guidance. Considering current river levels, we could
be looking at minor flooding. Particular concern will be for the small
creeks and streams that are suseptible during locally heavy rainfall.
Will continue to monitor NWS guidance for updates with potential
Precipitation ends Saturday
morning, with cooler air settiling into the region, temperatures in the
mid 60's. Looking like a nice day for the Commencement Ceremony on
Sunday should remain dry as
well, with a slight chance for a passing shower on Monday. But overall,
looking like a dry start to next week as well.
