Rain getting closer to Central New York

SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – After feeling record warmth once again in Syracuse on Wednesday, does the unseasonably mild weather stick around for the rest of the week? Find out below…

Have the umbrella handy late in the week

After a dry day Thursday, there could be a shower or two as early as sunset Thursday, but a better chance for widespread showers or even steady rain Thursday night possibly lingering into the start of Friday as low pressure tracks east across New York state.

Friday’s high will likely be cooler, closer to 50, in the wake of Thursday night’s system. Reminder, the average high this week in Syracuse is in the low 40s, so even low 50s is about 10 degrees above average.

Any ‘luck’ staying dry for the holiday weekend??

Yes, we think there will be some ‘luck’ for those out and about celebrating this holiday weekend.

We’ve got some good news for Saturday if you are headed to the St. Patrick’s Parade in downtown Syracuse. First, most of the showers from Friday and Friday night are moving out toward sunrise Saturday. While there could be a few lingering showers/patchy drizzle to start the day Saturday they would be light and should end before the start of the parade at Noon.

Second, temperatures look like they end up in the mid to upper 40s during the parade. If that’s ends up being the case that would make this year’s parade the warmest since 2016! We also think some sunny breaks occur during the parade.

Unfortunately, it appears there’s a better chance of at least a few showers on St. Patrick’s Day itself with highs within a few degrees of 50 once again.

Stay tuned for updates.
