Your Cortland County weather forecast for Sunday, August 23, 2020:
Summer continues to march on with another hot, humid day ahead.
A small disturbance working across the Great Lakes will turn winds to the south and southwest today at speeds of 5-10 mph. This, in turn, will lead to an increase in heat and humidity.
Skies should remain plenty sunny through the morning and into the afternoon, though fair-weather clouds will start to bubble up as well.
The sunshine should help temperatures along as well with highs today in the mid and upper 80s. Dewpoints will be in the 60s.
The heat and humidity combined with the approaching disturbance may touch off a few scattered afternoon shower and storms. Not all areas will get rain, but those that do could see heavy downpours.
Severe weather and flooding are not major concerns, though.
Showers and storms will dissipate late in the afternoon and skies should become mostly clear this evening. Areas that see some heavy rain could have a bit of evening fog.
Temperatures this evening will be slow to drop into the 60s.
Here is a look at the weather for the next several days:
Monday: Partly cloudy. Scattered showers and storms in the afternoon. Morning lows in the mid 60s. Afternoon highs in the mid 80s.
