Turning sunnier for all, but remaining cool Monday

SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – Our weather looks nice and quiet, albeit still a bit cool on Monday. Will we warm things up again anytime soon? Find out below…

Cool, but sunnier Monday

An area of high pressure will force cooler air south from Canada into central New York to begin the week.

Note, near and south and west of Syracuse it appears there’ll be some lake clouds in the morning before the clouds dry up and sunshine wins out for all for the afternoon. Despite the abundant afternoon sunshine, though, highs will only manage to reach the low 50s, which is several degrees below average for this time of year.

Milder on Tuesday, but…

The area of high pressure that brings us the sunny weather Monday is moving to our east Monday night. Meanwhile, low pressure is heading east out of the Great Lakes. This will drag a warm front through late Monday night/early Tuesday with a gusty southwest wind setting up. That should warm us back into the 60s with sun fading behind increasing clouds during the late morning and afternoon on Tuesday, with a few showers possible towards sunset.

The milder air we feel Tuesday won’t last, because a cold front is expected to swing through central New York to start Wednesday. Showers ahead of this front first arrive close to sunset on Tuesday then continue through the first part of Wednesday before we dry out after 1 or 2 pm Wednesday.

In the wake of the cold front look for a chilly, raw and blustery midweek as highs struggle to get out of the 40s Wednesday and Thursday despite a good deal of sun expected on Thursday!

Frost potential increases late week

There’s a better chance for a widespread frost/freeze Thursday and Friday mornings as you can see below with the overnight lows over the next 7 days. Sorry planters, but we all know now is not the time to plant any sensitive vegetation. Mid to late May is safer if you can wait.
