Your Cortland County weather forecast for Tuesday, August 25, 2020:
A cold front will move through the region today but will do so too early for widespread thunderstorm activity.
There will be a chance for showers and perhaps a stray storm through the midday or early afternoon hours.
Most of the rain will be light, but if any storms do manage to pop up, they will have a chance at producing some gusty winds or small hail.
As the front pushes further south, the afternoon will turn dry. Blustery northwest winds will set up with speeds of 10-15 mph. Gusts could exceed 30 mph at times, especially as the front first moves through.
High temperatures will occur just before the front moves in, reaching the upper 70s. The temperature should drop a couple degrees for the mid and late afternoon with a more noticeable drop in humidity.
Tonight will be mostly clear to partly cloudy with a gentler breeze. Expect temperatures to fall into the 60s this evening and into the 50s after midnight.
