Wet start but nice finish to weekend

A rainy Saturday gives way to a sunny Sunday!

Posted: May. 11, 2018 4:47 PM

Happy almost weekend! Our weather has turned much cooler this Friday, with highs in the 50s with a return to sunshine. The weather turns cold tonight, with overnight lows in the 30s. Our next weather system will be fast approaching and is expected to bring us rain as we head into the start of the weekend.

That rain is part of a stalled frontal boundary. Fronts seperate warm and cold air. This time around, we're in the cold air, and the rain overspreading the front will be in our region on Saturday. Rain is expected to start before daybreak and remain steady through the mid to late morning. The steadiest rain is expected to fall south of the Mohawk Valley, but it will be a close call. The front does wobble south for Saturday afternoon, meaning we'll get a chance to dry out by later in the day. It stays cool all of Saturday, with highs only in the 50s. Some places may not get out of the 40s, but don't worry, it's looking too warm to snow in the lower elevations.

Sunday's weather is looking much nicer as the front continues to push south. Sunshine returns and temperatures climb into the 60s! We'll enjoy this nice weather into early next week, with highs climbing into the 70s going forward. The next chance of rain is going to be Wednesday with the possibility of showers and thunderstorms.
