Soaking rain heading to CNY

  • Steady rain for this evening
  • Umbrella is needed if you’re headed to the Amphitheater concert
  • Severe weather is not a concern, but could be some thunder with the rain

SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) After a dry, warm day in central New York rain is moving in quickly for the evening.

When does the rain arrive?

For most of Central New York, the rain moves in from west to east between now and 6 pm and should be steady through the evening. That likely impacts your evening plans including the James Taylor concert at the Amp. You can track the rain below:

The rain should be steady through about 10 or 11 p.m. with some heavy downpours and even some thunder and lightning. It has been dry recently around the Syracuse area so the threat for any localized flooding is low. We will, however, keep an eye on the southern Finger Lakes where there was heavier rain this past weekend.

Could there be any severe t-storms?

The threat is low for any severe t-storms in central New York as some drier air (i.e. lower dew points) has moved in during the day.

There is some ‘juicer’ air and a frontal system closer to the Pennsylvania/New York line and points from there south are more apt to see severe t-storms early this evening. In fact, there is a Severe T-Storm Watch in effect through the evening from Elmira and Binghamton south.

Our weather dries out overnight and for tomorrow sunshine returns by afternoon.
