Weather: Sun Now, Showers Later (7/7 AM)

Morning Forecast Discussion

Happy Friday!

A high pressure system is moving off to our east, meaning the humidity sticks around for another day and it stays windy with gusts from the south up to 15 mph. Friday will be mainly dry in the morning with partly sunny skies but by the afternoon scattered showers bubble up. Northern New York and into the Champlain Valley has the possibility of an isolated thunderstorm heading through this evening. Small hail and gusty winds with a brief downpour is possible but widespread heavy rain is not anticipated as highs will reach the lower 80s.


A cold front will move through bringing more showers for Saturday.The morning commute starts mild with lows in the mid 60s. Clouds and rain for most of the day but nothing too worrisome. The chance for flooding is still minor, but we're taking into consideration that many waterways are at or close to their peaks. Highs will be cooler than average only reaching the mid 70s. Our average high for this time of year is 81°! 

Sunday will start off cool with temps in the upper 50s. Overall, Sunday will be drier with more sun but a chance for a few late showers over Northern New York, Northern Vermont & into Southern Quebec. Highs in the mid to upper 70s. Behind a moving cold front, cooler and drier air arrives by mid week with the chance at showers & thunderstorms returning later next week.


If you're in the Plattsburgh area this weekend, the Mayor's Cup has kicked off the weekend. We're your official forecast! Friday and Sunday's weather is staying mainly dry with a slight chance at some passing showers. Saturday is your best day at any rain so make sure to grab the umbrella, poncho, or rain jacket. Some events going on this weekend: Tonight starting at 6 pm is the Mayor's Cup 5k. On Saturday starting at 10 am is the 40th annual Mayor's Cup Regatta. Sunday starting at 8am the CVPH Mayor's Cup Bike Ride.

 

Have a great weekend!
