SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – How does some more sun sound?! Find out how long our nice weather stretch lasts below.
Staying dry with more sun at times
We are in the midst of a nice, unusually long dry, bright February stretch of weather through Thursday. As high pressure continues to be the main weather player for the region, we can look forward to some more sunshine into Thursday!
The only little fly in the ointment into Thursday will be some high and mid-level clouds that’ll block and or filter the sun at times.
Spring feel develops too
Tonight won’t be as cold as the last couple of nights thanks to some clouds and a milder air mass moving in. Lows drop into the 20s for most.
After tonight, though, the next few nights will probably be milder than the average highs for this time of year! Lows Thursday night through Saturday night will range from the mid-30s to mid-40s!
Same goes for the highs the rest of this week. In addition to the quiet weather and intervals of sunshine, temperatures will likely warm past 50 Thursday, Friday and possibly into record territory, 56° set in 2001, on Saturday! It’ll feel like April around here rather than February for the last half of the week! Definitely a little spring fever!
Shower chances return by weeks end
The next chance for any precipitation will likely arrive as rain, a few scattered morning showers/sprinkles, as we expect a weakening trough to move in from the west on Friday. Conditions should also turn breezy late Thursday night into Friday.
Turning cooler, not colder, over the weekend
It slowly turns cooler later in the weekend with highs cooling out of the 50s on Saturday to around 40 Sunday, which remains well above the normal of 33° this weekend!
Winter enthusiasts/snow lovers there is some hope on the horizon…There are strong indications that point towards a more normal mid-winter pattern trying to take shape beyond Super Bowl weekend, and a possible nor’easter across the East/Northeast early next week. Stay tuned for updates.
