Your Cortland County weather forecast for Friday, August 7, 2020:

Today’s weather will trend back towards unsettled, but it should by no means be a washout.

Some energy traveling along the jet stream through the Great Lakes will pull a stalled out front northward from the Mid-Atlantic. This will lead to scattered showers today.

The rain will be possible at any time, though much of the day will not actively have rain falling. A few periods of showers may be possible.

Within the scattered showers, a heavy downpour or a few rumbles of thunder could be possible. Severe weather and flooding are not expected.

Temperatures will make it to the mid 70s this afternoon during some of the dry periods. A little sun may make it out during these times, too.

Winds will be from the east and southeast at around 5 mph. Peak gusts will top out at 15-20 mph.

Scattered showers will continue into the evening as temperatures fall back into the 60s.

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

Saturday: A couple morning showers, followed by some sun in the afternoon. Morning lows in the low 60s. Afternoon highs in the mid 70s.

Sunday: A mix of sun and clouds. Morning lows near 60. Afternoon highs in the low 80s.
