Summer has made a brief return to the area, and will be with us through Wednesday. Highs are forecasted to crack the 80 degree mark on both Tuesday and Wednesday. The humidity will also be a factor, making the temperature feel 3 to 5 degrees warmer than they actually are. Accompanying this warmup will be a period of generally sunny skies, as high pressure moves over the area.
Enjoy it while it lasts.
The aforementioned high pressure system scoots out of the area Wednesday night, giving way to a strong cold front that will drop daytime highs by over 30ºF. As this cold front continues to move east, it will stall out as it winds from Hurricane Michael will push against the cold front's forward momentum. The obvious good news is the presence of this stalled front will keep the remains of the hurricane far away from Central New York. The bad news is the stalled front will keep clouds and gloomy weather over the area for an extended period of time. It's not likely that we'll catch a glimpse of sun until late Sunday, no pun intended.
