SEVERE WX : Severe Thunderstorm Watch - Heat Advisory View Alerts

Rain, rain, go away

A streak of cloudy, wet weather looks to break tomorrow.

Posted: May 7, 2019 4:26 PM

Did you know the last *completely* dry day in Central New York was on April 25th? Since then, some part of each day has recorded rainfall - some days saw quite a bit more than others. This streak of 12 days looks to end tomorrow, with a return to full sunshine and completely dry weather.

While it's unusual to see an extended period of weather like this, we are in the spring season. The jet stream has been stalled over our region and remains seasonally active, with warm and cold air clashing on a regular basis. The general pattern will end as we head into the warmer season, with the jet stream retreating to the north. Until then, expect this dreary weather to continue for the next few weeks.

It's not all wet all the time though. We do get breaks in the rain. Wednesday and Thursday look dry, with rain returning later Thursday into Thursday night. Friday looks wet, with showers and thunderstorms. The weekend looks to start out dry, before the next weather system brings rain late Sunday.
