Temporarily dry, quiet tonight

SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – After a blustery, raw start to the weekend, thankfully it is milder with less wind Sunday, but could turn a bit stormy for a few. Who has the best potential to see a strong storm or two? Find out below…

Winds ease with a temporary lull in the rain

Thankfully the winds ease tonight, and the sky temporarily clears too before more clouds work in towards morning with lows in the upper 30s to around 40.

Any better Sunday?

Eh… depends on how you look at it. It’s not as windy or chilly Sunday, but we’re still dealing with some rain showers and possibly a few t-storms for areas near and especially south of Syracuse.

We’re forecasting a high temperature on Sunday of 59°, but if it becomes warmer, that would allow for a greater possibility of thunderstorms, especially Syracuse southbound.

Severe threat Sunday?

A fast-moving area of low pressure is blowing through CNY Sunday afternoon with some rain showers at times during the morning ahead of the storm system, followed by a developing line of heavier showers and possibly a few thunderstorms near and south of Syracuse.

At this point, it appears areas south of Syracuse across the southern Finger Lakes have the best chance to sneak into the warm sector and experience thunderstorm development Sunday afternoon. This is where there’s a risk of seeing an isolated strong to severe thunderstorm possibly producing damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph.  

Turns drier to start the new week

As the fast moving system moves out of CNY late Sunday afternoon/early evening, so too will the shower threat for the most part Sunday night into Monday as high pressure starts to build in Monday.

There’s only a slight risk of a passing shower late Sunday night, and possibly a passing shower or two through lunch time Monday, especially north and east of Syracuse.

It’s comfortable and slightly milder than average Monday along with some afternoon sunshine. Highs will be between 55 and 60 to start the week.

High pressure tracks south of us into central Pennsylvania with lots of sunshine expected and high temperatures Tuesday expected to rise into the mid-60s.
