Cortland Weather Outlook: Monday, September 14

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Monday, September 14, 2020:

A cool, moist flow of air behind yesterday’s weather system will influence our weather until high pressure builds in this afternoon.

Expect plenty of clouds through the morning and into the midday hours. A few light and brief showers will also be possible from time to time.

Dry air associated with high pressure should work in later on, though. How quickly the clouds dissipate in these situations is always a tricky proposition to work out.

Usually, clouds linger longer than expected, so don’t be surprised if it takes much of the afternoon to get the sun out in full. Eventually though, it should turn mostly sunny with clear skies for tonight.

The north-northwest wind will blow at around 10 mph with gusts of 25-30 mph. This, along with the clouds, will keep temperatures in just the low 60s through the afternoon.

Tonight’s temperatures will quickly drop through the 50s and into 40s for what should be the coldest night of the season so far.

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

Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Morning lows in the low 40s. Afternoon highs in the mid 60s.

Wednesday: Lots of sunshine. Morning lows in the mid 40s. Afternoon highs in the mid 70s.

Thursday: Increasing thin clouds, but no rain. Morning lows in the low 50s. Afternoon highs in the mid 70s.

Friday: Cloudy with some rain possible. Morning lows in the mid 50s. Afternoon highs in the low 60s.
