CORTLAND, N.Y. — A warm front will cross through the Cortland area Tuesday afternoon, bringing temperatures to near record levels on Tuesday and Wednesday.

A high temperature of 63 degrees is predicted for Tuesday, with highs in the lower 60s on Wednesday.

A cold front will mark the return of rain showers late Wednesday afternoon into Thursday, along with cooler temperatures. This will help melt the remaining snow left on the ground.

Oneida County is under a flood watch, though the Cortland area is not expected to see much in the way of flooding.

High temperatures on Thursday aren't expected to exceed 40 degrees and may be accompanied by rain. On Friday, rain, sleet, and freezing rain are likely, with highs ranging in the low to mid-40s for the weekend.
