Record warmth departs; how cool does it get?

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…

Quiet weather tonight

Our weather will remain quiet across central New York heading through tonight. A cold front has moved through but the air behind it is only slightly cooler than what was over us today.

Lows will be mild, in the mid to upper 30s. Keep in mind, the average low for this time of year is in the mid-20s.

Have the umbrella handy late in the week

We cool some to end the week as rain chances return, but we’ll still remain warmer than average. 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. The system causing this rain, low pressure, is quickly moving east so even though there may be a few showers Friday the day is looking drier.

We think highs reach the upper 50s to low 60s on Thursday. 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.
