CORTLAND, N.Y. — Central New Yorkers weary of the snow and cold can look forward to slightly warmer days in the final week of March, though rain showers will be prevalent toward the end of the week.

According to the National Weather Service, a storm system moving from Canada will result in rainy weather in parts of the Northeast Wednesday through Friday.

Temperatures will climb into the upper 40s under mostly sunny skies to start the week. Monday night, wind speeds will pick up and low temps will drop into the mid-20s.

Rain showers are in the forecast Tuesday night through late Friday, with a chance for wet snow to mix in with the rain showers early Wednesday morning.

Daytime temperatures later in the week will range from the upper 40s to the lower 50s. Temperatures on Easter Sunday are predicted to be in the upper 30s.

Enjoy this spate of warm weather while you can; some forecasters are predicting that colder temperatures will return for the first week of April.
