Ahhhhh early spring! After an extended stretch of sunny weather, the clouds are back in abundance. Our next weather system brings a round of rain for Thursday afternoon and evening, along with somewhat milder temperatures.

The rain arrives from low pressure swinging in from the south. The really warm air associated with this storm will pass to our south and east, with highs in the 60s making it as far north as Pennsylvania and New Jersey (perhaps New York City if the seabreeze holds off). Locally, we think temperatures stay in the 40s most of the day, with perhaps a few spots hitting 50, especially south and east of Utica.

The next rainfall produces another half inch of rain across the region, with higher amounts north of the Mohawk Valley. So far, flooding concerns are still at a relative low. The dry weather leading into this current pattern was benificial. Also, the snow melt has been slow and gradual lately.

Looking ahead to the weekend, the weather reamins active.  Saturday looks pleasant, with sunshine and highs in the upper 40s.  The next weather system arrives Saturday night as a strong cold front moves through.  Rain, wind, and snow showers will linger into Easter morning.  Easter looks cold and windy, with scattered snow showers.  We'll take a closer look at that on Friday.
