Good morning! Here’s a look at your weather outlook for the week:

Sunny and dry conditions will persist throughout the day Monday, with the next chance for rain coming on Tuesday as a low pressure system arrives from the Great Lakes region.

Thunderstorms and heavy rain are possible Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night, which could cause flash flooding. Given the large quantity of rain central New York has experienced for the past several weeks, it will only take an inch of rain an hour to cause flash flooding, forecasters said.

Most areas will get rainfall amounts of around half an inch, though isolated amounts of 2 inches are possible.

Some showers with cold air is expected on Wednesday, with highs in the lower 70s.

Sunshine should prevail through the week and weekend, with highs averaging in the mid 70s and lows in the 50s overnight.
