Rain wednesday, then cooling off

Yesterday’s sunny skies and seasonal temperatures will give way today and tomorrow to increasing clouds and warmer than average temperatures ahead of an approaching low pressure systems. The models are predicting a secondary low (associated with a low pressure in Ontario) to form in central New York and affect our region on Wednesday.

We should experience rain showers beginning Wednesday afternoon through very early Thursday morning, which will be heaviest Wednesday night. A strong southerly low level jet will give blustery conditions on Wednesday, with gusts of up to 40 mph possible.

More towards the end of the week, temperatures will cool off substantially as a high pressure system moves in. Looking a bit further, there is a chance for our first snow flurries of the season over the weekend!
