Your Cortland County weather forecast for Monday, August 24, 2020:
A hot and humid airmass out ahead of a cold front will be conducive for a few showers and storms today.
Sunshine this morning will get temperatures rising quickly, and fair weather clouds will start to develop by the mid morning hours.
These clouds will continue to grow into the afternoon, and by the late afternoon hours, a few scattered showers and storms will pop up.
Any storms that develop will have a chance for frequent lightning, heavy rain, and perhaps some strong wind gusts.
Not all of Cortland County will see rain, and there is a chance the scattered nature of the storms causes them to miss the county altogether.
Winds will be from a generally westerly direction, though some variations to the north and south will be possible from time to time. Speeds will be around 5 mph with gusts to 15 mph.
High temperatures will reach the mid 80s this afternoon with muggy dewpoints well into the 60s.
Any thunderstorm activity should die off tonight. Areas that see rain could have some fog, but otherwise, expect partly cloudy to mostly clear skies.
