Your Cortland County weather forecast for Saturday, August 1, 2020:
High pressure will keep the weather quiet during the daytime hours before an active pattern sets up.
The first hints of this new pattern will be in the form of thin cirrus clouds that will gradually thicken over the course of the day. By the afternoon, these clouds should noticeably filter the sunshine.
No rain is expected during the day or evening hours though.
High temperatures will at least be in the low 80s this afternoon, though a few mid 80s will also be possible. Humidity levels will stay low with dewpoints sticking in the 50s until the evening.
Winds will be at or under 5 mph from varying directions. Eventually though, winds will become southeasterly late in the day and into the evening.
An approaching warm front will spread showers and thunderstorms in for the overnight hours, lingering into early Sunday morning.
The wind, clouds, and eventual rain should keep temperatures around 70 most of the night.
Here is a look at the weather for the next several days:
Sunday: Morning rain and thunder. Then, some sun and perhaps an afternoon storm. Morning lows near 70. Afternoon highs in the mid 80s.
Monday: Sun, clouds, and scattered showers or storms. Morning lows in the mid 60s. Afternoon highs near 80.
Tuesday: Rain and thunderstorms likely. Morning lows in the mid 60s. Afternoon highs in the mid 70s.
