Showers Friday ahead of a split weekend

SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – Can you feel the difference? We’re out of the sweatbox, but it’s not completely dry out there either. Details below…

Cooler, less humid, but showery end to the week

An upper level and surface storm system spins in from the northwest to end the week and unfortunately sticks around into the weekend. This system likely produces at least a scattering of showers to round out the week into the weekend.

The most likely time for showers and perhaps a rumble of thunder on Friday is between 10 am and 5 pm. The showers should then diminish on Friday evening.

Temperatures scale back to the upper 60s to low 70s Friday.

Will wet weather get in the way of weekend plans?

One hopeful sign for the weekend is the new data we’ve looked at suggests there will be less showers around Saturday, so it is looking to be the better of the two weekend days. That’s certainly good news for those headed to Greek Fest or the Taste of Syracuse or anyone with outdoor plans.

The wetter part of the weekend now appears to be Saturday night while you are sleeping. That moves out toward Sunday morning and Sunday features showers that are more scattered in nature.

We’ll likely struggle to get much past 70 degrees over the weekend.

One additional note for the weekend: a gusty breeze past 25 mph at times both days out of the west northwest Saturday then west on Sunday. That will put a bit of a chop on area waterways, especially Lake Ontario and Oneida Lake.

Why so cool and somewhat unsettled for the end of the week and beyond? Find out here.
