After a wet start, turning drier Sunday

SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – You’ll want to keep sweatshirts and raincoats nearby on Sunday, but it is not all bad news for Central New York. Check out the latest details below.

A silver lining for Mother’s Day

Low pressure passes close to us Sunday morning, so we think this is the time of the weekend when showers are most widespread.

We are now becoming more optimistic that this wet weather system is going to quickly move off to our southeast in the afternoon, so the second half of Sunday is looking drier. We are also seeing some signs of late afternoon sunshine, so keep your fingers crossed.

However, you may still want to keep the jackets/sweatshirts handy Sunday as highs likely only reach to within a few degrees of 60. Over the hills south of Syracuse it may be a struggle to get beyond the mid 50s.

By tonight, there should be enough breaks in the clouds to potentially get a view of the northern lights.

Is this wet pattern ready to break?

Unfortunately, the next in a series of frontal systems is moving out of the Great Lakes and headed toward Central New York for Monday.  New showers should be here by late morning and continue in a scattered fashion through the afternoon.  There could even be a rumble of thunder later in the day.

Despite the showers, we should still be able to warm into the upper 60s which would make Monday a seasonably mild day by mid-May standards.
