Spring pays a visit

A warming trend will make it feel more like spring by Thursday and Friday.

Posted: Mar 12, 2019 5:17 PM

It's been a cold March, so far. Several days in a row last week stayed in the teens, and the brief warm weather we had didn't last. Our cold weather is expected to break as we head into late this week, with an extensive snow melt anticipated.

Cold air slowly retreats beginning Wednesday. We start out in the teens, but a south wind will push arctic air out of Central New York. Temperatures are expected to climb into the upper 30s to low 40s.

A warm front brings a round of rain showers to the region Wednesday night. The colder pockets could see a brief round of freezing rain, as temperatures are expected to be in the low 30s Wednesday evening. This doesn't last, as temperatures climb above freezing overnight.

Much warmer weather is expected on Thursday and early Friday. High temperatures look to climb into the mid 50s on Thursday afternoon. Temperatures remain well above freezing Thursday night. Highs on Friday could push 60 degrees before a cold front moves through. A round of steady rain is expected before cooler weather returns for the weekend.

We'll keep tabs on the snow melt, but at this point we do not anticipate any major flooding issues. We'll keep you posted.
