SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – Yes, clouds will remain stubborn for the most part through midweek, but are there any brighter changes by the end of the week? Details are below…
Pretty quiet this week (and beyond?)
The weather pattern looks to give central New York and the Northeast a break as we end January and head into February.
The jet stream winds look to keep any major storms systems away from us not only the rest of this week but potentially much of next week too!
Can we get any sun?!
We’re sure going to try, but probably with not much luck in the short term, unfortunately.
An area of high pressure just off to our east through Wednesday keeps CNY dry, but probably not dry enough to mix out the low clouds.
Last Monday morning, January 22nd was the last time CNY saw any appreciable sunshine. We’d say we are due!
Dry midweek, but a bit unsettled late week
Meanwhile, a weak system passing south of the Northeast Wednesday will keep its spotty showers south of us too, as it stays dry through midweek.
The next best chance of rain and snow showers comes Thursday afternoon and evening which change to snow showers Thursday night into the start of Friday. Little to no snow accumulation is expected late in the week.
High temperatures will inch up into the upper 30s to maybe 40 Wednesday and low 40s Thursday which is several degrees above average for the end of January and start of February.
New air mass, new look come the weekend!
We do probably turn more seasonable again Friday into the weekend with a fresh new air mass building in on a northerly flow out of Canada. What does that mean besides it turning cooler? We think the air will be dry enough to scour out the low-level clouds that have been out there for more than a week, and result in welcomed sunshine finally!
So yes, it is cooler, 30s, this weekend, but brighter! 😊
