A low pressure system passing to our north will drag a cold front from west to east across the region today bringing scattered rain showers after lunchtime. In the meantime, this morning, clouds will continue to fill in with strong south winds of 15-25 mph gusting towards 30+ mph. High temps are again on the mild side, hitting the mid 50s to near 60; but of course it won't feel that toasty with those gusty winds.
By midday, a batch of showers lines up with the St. Lawrence River and drops from northwest to southeast throughout the afternoon. Behind the cold front, colder air fills in allowing for that rain to change over into a light wintry mix or light snow showers. But with the colder temps, comes drier air and so just as quickly as that snow starts, it tapers off. Valley spots see a few flurries while elevations above 1500 ft may get a dusting to 1" from snow showers.
On Saturday, clouds decrease throughout the morning as high pressure builds in overhead giving us a quiet but cool weekend. Highs reach the upper 30s both days!
Have a fantastic weekend! See you Monday!
