Warming up again Sunday

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – Don’t blink, but Saturday’s cold weather is about ready to leave. Just how warm does it get in the week ahead? Find out below…

Cold air ready to move out

Almost as quickly as the cold air comes in to start the weekend, it is starting to depart. We are already back into the 40s by Sunday which will be about 20 degrees warmer than Saturday’s temperatures.  We expect sunshine in the morning to give way to increasing clouds in the afternoon.

A bit of precipitation as the weekend ends

While Sunday itself is dry, a weakening frontal system approaches central New York on Sunday night. That will bring some rain and even snow showers to the region.  With temperatures staying above freezing in Syracuse and most of the lower elevations, we would expect little if any accumulation of snow.  However, over the higher terrain of the Tug Hill there could be a trace to an inch or so of snow.

With the frontal system starting to exit, we are waking up Monday morning to dry weather.

Mild end to February

Even though it is a big recovery to get temperatures into the low 40s Sunday, there are even warmer days to come.

As we get some sun out Monday afternoon, we could manage upper 40s.

It looks even warmer for Tuesday and Wednesday as southwesterly winds ahead of an approaching cold front bring unseasonably mild air our way.  We’ve bumped the high temperatures for those two days into the 60s, just a couple of degrees off the record highs.

Along with the warmer weather comes gusty southwest winds and showers.  The showers are scattered in nature on Tuesday but more widespread on Wednesday as the cold front gets even closer midweek.
