Cortland Weather Outlook: Friday, July 31

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Friday, July 31, 2020:

The final day of July will have near-average temperatures and dry conditions.

The regional weather set-up has our area between two low pressure systems. First is a departing low over eastern Canada that brough the unsettled weather earlier in the week. Second is a low in the Ohio Valley that will track east into the Mid-Atlantic region.

We will see some thin cirrus clouds from time to time on the northern fringe of influence from the second low. However, precipitation should stay locked away over the southern half of Pennsylvania.

In addition to the cirrus clouds, sunshine will dodge in and out of fair-weather cumulus clouds as well.

High temperatures will be around 80 degrees this afternoon with the northern half of the county just below 80 and the southern half just above.

Winds will be from the north at 3-7 mph with gusts staying under 20 mph.

Tonight will be a mix of more thin cirrus clouds and starlight with temperatures backing through the 60s.

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

Saturday: Partly cloudy. Morning lows near 60. Afternoon highs in the low 80s.

Sunday: Showers and thunderstorms possible. Morning lows in the mid 60s. Afternoon highs in the low 80s.

Monday: Sun, clouds, and scattered showers or storms. Morning lows in the mid 60s. Afternoon highs near 80.

Tuesday: Rain possible, but highly uncertain due to potential influence from Tropical Storm Isaias. Morning lows in the mid 60s. Afternoon highs in the low 70s.
