A weak, disorganized low pressure system will continue to drift through the region today.
Like yesterday, the result will be clouds and a few light rain showers, but no substantial or sustained rainfall.
The showers will be possible at almost any time today, with a slight preference for the midday and first half of the afternoon. Individual showers will be brief, light, and widely scattered. Some showers may not be enough to fully wet the pavement, and rain amounts should stay under a tenth of an inch.
The best chance for some sun poking through the clouds will be late in the afternoon as the low begins to pull away. Low clouds and fog will develop tonight, but no additional rain is expected.
Winds will turn today from the south early this morning, then to the west, and finally the northwest. Wind speeds will remain under 10 mph with top gusts on the day of 15-20 mph.
Despite the clouds, showers, and shifting winds, high temperatures will still make it into the low and mid 60s this afternoon. Evening temperatures will drop through the 50s with overnight lows ending up in the mid 40s.
Early clouds will burn off tomorrow morning and much of the day will be mostly sunny. Light north winds will blow at speeds up to 5 mph. The wind should knock a couple degrees off the high with most areas in the low 60s. Overnight lows will fall to the low 40s.
The wind will be back to the south on Thursday. With full sunshine and next to no clouds, highs should not have much trouble reaching the mid 60s.
Weekend and Next Week’s Weather
The weather pattern will hold as we head into the weekend.
Friday will have a few thin clouds working in from the west, but nothing that will impact the available sunshine much. South winds will hold with speeds just under 10 mph. High temperatures will average out in the upper 60s, but some areas are likely to reach 70 degrees.
By Saturday, highs near 70 will be widespread and the typically warm areas will be well into the low 70s. The south wind will increase with speeds around or just over 10 mph. Gusts could exceed 25 mph.
Skies will remain sunny on Saturday, but more clouds will mix with the sunshine than on Friday. This trend will continue into Sunday, which could end up more cloudy than sunny. A stray shower may even be possible on Sunday, but the chances are too low and too uncertain to include the rain icon in the 7-day forecast graphic.
Regardless, Sunday will remain very warm with highs again around or above 70 degrees. This is about twenty degrees above average and getting close to some daily record highs. Ithaca and Auburn both have record highs of 71 degrees on Sunday which could be broken.
South winds will be blustery Saturday night and Sunday morning, but then will decrease for Sunday afternoon
Cloud will stick around for Monday. Again, there is a small but uncertain chance for a few showers. South winds will continue to keep highs at least in the upper 60s.
The middle of next week is uncertain, with a transition to cooler weather eventually taking place. The timing of this, as well as what rain we may see to usher in the cooler air, is uncertain.
By next weekend and the following week, temperatures should be near or slightly below average.
