CNY has more wet weather to dodge

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

Showers on the increase tonight

Low pressure and a frontal system are dropping southeast out of the Great Lakes Saturday. After scattered showers in the afternoon, showers become more widespread heading into the evening and overnight.

Of course, this wet weather implies there will be plenty of clouds. This would get in the way of viewing of any northern lights if they were to develop. Even western New York would be socked in with clouds so a drive west to Rochester tonight won’t improve your chances.

With all the clouds, we would expect temperatures to only drop to near 50 degrees tonight.

A silver lining for Mother’s Day

Low pressure passes close to us Saturday night into 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 more of a struggle to get out of the mid 50s.

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.
