Back to winter this weekend

After a taste of spring, the weather looks to cool down for the weekend.

Posted: Mar 12, 2021 6:23 PM

I hope you had the chance to enjoy the spring weather we had over the past few days. Much colder weather returns as we head into the weekend. While it's not going to be as cold as it was last weekend, it will be windier.

A cold front is moving through the region this evening. This front will be responsible for bringing a sharp drop in the temperature along with gusty winds. Wind gusts will top out between 40-45 mph until late this evening. Temperatures are expected to drop into the teens by Saturday morning.

High pressure will bring lots of sunshine to the region on Saturday. High temperatures only climb into the low 30s. With the wind, it will feel more like 20s. Wind gusts look to top out between 25-30 mph in the afternoon.

An arctic front arrives on Sunday, bringing very windy weather to the region. The air ahead of the front looks dry and the front drops in from the north. This combination means only a few snow showers are expected, as the lakes aren't expected to play a major role in snowfall. Winds on Sunday afternoon are expected to gust up to 50 mph across the Mohawk Valley. This is enough to create some minor damage and isolated power outages.

The winds die down on Monday, with even colder weather. Highs are only expected to climb into the upper 20s. Overnight lows look to drop into the single digits to near zero. Warmer weather will return for the middle of next week, with highs back in the 40s by Wednesday.
