Spring returns, again, this weekend! It's been a cold couple of days in Central New York, with snow finally coming to an end late last night. Many areas saw a minor accumulation of snow on Thursday, but that has completely melted in the lower elevations. Any remaining snow is expected to melt, with the exception of what's still on the ground in the Adirondacks.
We've got one more really cold night to get through, with clear skies and light winds. This should make for excellent viewing of Friday's international space station flyby. Here's the time and details of the passage:
Overnight lows fall into the teens tonight. This isn't quite record breaking, but it's close. The record low tonight is 11° set back in 1954.
Much warmer weather returns to Central New York on Saturday. Sunshine, with highs in the upper 40s. A warm front brings clouds to the region Saturday night, with a round of light rain and snow showers. Little accumulation is expected. Easter Sunday starts out cloudy and dry, with maybe a lingering flurry. Clouds give way to sunshine, with highs in the mid 50s.
Warmer weather will continue into next week, with sunshine and near to above average temperatures. Highs look to be generally in the mid 50s to low 60s, with the next chance of widespread rain late in the week.
