Cortland Weather Outlook: Sunday, May 31

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Sunday, May 31, 2020:

The final day of May will be a chilly one as the core of a cool air mass slides in overhead.

Accompanying the cool air will be plenty of clouds. Eventually, some sunshine will return this afternoon as dry air works in. By the evening, skies should become mostly clear.

A few stray showers or bits of drizzle will be possible, but any rain that falls should remain very light. This is most likely during the morning hours.

Winds will be from the northwest at 10-15 mph, transporting the cool air into the region. Top gusts will be around 30 mph.

Temperatures will only manage to reach the low to perhaps mid 50s this afternoon. That is about twenty degrees colder than the average high, and about forty degrees colder than most late May record highs.

Tonight, temperatures will steadily fall through the 40s and may end up in the 30s by Monday morning with a few isolated pockets of frost.

Here is a look at the weather for the next several days:

Monday: Isolated morning frost. More clouds than sun. A few afternoon showers. Morning lows in the upper 30s. Afternoon highs around 60.
