After a cool start to Tuesday with temperatures in the 40s and upper 30s, we expect temperatures to warm up into the middle 70s as we head into the afternoon. The weather is expected to remain dry for today and the first half of Wednesday before unsettled weather is expected Wednesday afternoon and Thursday.

Skies remain generally fair tonight with seasonably cool temperatures. Expect overnight lows in the low to middle 50s. Clouds begin to increase by the early morning hours of Wednesday as our next area of low pressure approaches Central New York from the west. This low is embedded in a shortwave trough that will carry a warm front bringing widespread showers and a few thunderstorms to our area. Severe weather does not look likely.

This low pressure system continues to influence our weather on Thursday. Widespread showers and a few thunderstorms look to continue. As this low exits Central New York, temperatures are expected to soar as a large ridge begins to build across the eastern United States. Temperatures warm into the middle to upper 80s on Friday with ample sunshine.

Our first heatwave in nearly five years is expected to begin on Saturday and continue through Monday with temperatures into the low 90s. Make sure to drink plenty of water and limit time outdoors if you do need to be outside. We’ll have the newest details as this gets closer.
