Rain rolls in for Saturday

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – Sunny skies from Friday will be replaced by clouds and some rain to start the weekend. Details below…

Wet start to the weekend

After a beautiful sunny day thanks to high pressure, clouds quickly move in from the south Friday night as that high moves out to sea and our winds go into the south.

Precipitation is right on the heels of the overnight clouds, and we would expect some rain in central New York before daybreak Saturday. It may be cool enough in higher elevations east of Syracuse so the precipitation could start as some wet snow or freezing rain.

Precipitation continues Saturday but with temperatures in the 40s it looks like just some light rain during the daylight.

Clouds remain stubborn

It is drier on Sunday. Look for a cloudy start and our concern is the cloud cover is going to be stubborn. Right now, plan on the clouds having the upper hand even into the afternoon but with a few breaks to sun.  The air mass over us is quite warm so even just a little sun should get us into the 50s.

Looking at more record warmth

High pressure continues to build in overnight and Monday which should help to clear us out to start the week.  With sunshine Monday and a steady breeze, we should have no trouble warming into the 60s. The record for Monday is 63 set in 1974 and we have a good shot of breaking that record with mid to upper 60s looking likely.
