SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) –We have enjoyed a mild and dry first week of February?! Find out how long our nice weather stretch lasts below.
Feeling like Spring
We are in the midst of a nice, unusually long dry and mild February stretch of weather as high pressure remains the main weather player for the region. In fact, southwest winds on the backside of that high brought temperatures into the 60s Friday! Read about the record high in Syracuse by clicking here.
That high is moving off the East Coast so our mild days are numbered.
We could even be in record territory again Saturday (56° set in 2001) It’ll feel like April around here rather than February for the last half of the week! Definitely a little spring fever!
We have a break from the frosty mornings for a little while, too.
When does it rain or snow again?
Our chances for rain go up Saturday afternoon as a frontal system approaches from the west. There even could be some thunder.
Showers could be steady at times Saturday evening before tapering off late Saturday night. We cannot completely rule out isolated rain or wet snow showers on Sunday morning, especially for areas north of the Thruway.
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!
But where is the snow?!
Winter enthusiasts/snow lovers, there is at least some hope on the horizon!
We’re watching closely for a possible nor’easter across the East/Northeast Monday night through Tuesday with some snow. As of Friday afternoon, it looks like a glancing blow for central New York with just snow showers for us with heavy snow more likely from Pennsylvania into southern New England. We remain several days away from the system moving close to us so stay tuned for updates.
There is certainly going to be more seasonable temperatures around for next week.
