Feeling like early spring

The mild weather is here to stay for the majority of this week!

Posted: Feb 26, 2018 5:12 PM

Winter has a mean reputation in this part of the country - the weather this week won't fit that narrative.  The last week of meteorological winter will feel more like early spring in Central New York - with daytime in the 40s and 50s and opportunities for sunshine.

High pressure rolls in for Monday night and Tuesday, bringing abundant sunshine to the region.  The brisk winds we saw in the Mohawk Valley Monday afternoon will not return in force on Tuesday.  That is all thanks to high pressure rolling in, which will relieve the pressure gradient - a force that causes wind.  

Temperatures climb to near 50 both Tuesday and Wednesday in the Mohawk Valley.  Clouds return Wednesday afternoon as a weak cold front arrives.  A rain shower or two is expected Wednesday night, followed by clouds and "cooler" weather for Thursday - highs in the upper 40s.  We are watching a storm that will develop and push south of our region as we approach the weekend.  This could give parts of CNY a mix of rain and snow showers - especially on Friday. 

No signs of winter's harsh return anytime soon!
