Your Cortland County weather forecast for Saturday, September 19, 2020:
A cool Canadian high pressure will keep our weather chilly, but quiet.
No precipitation will fall today and even clouds will be hard to come by. A few small fair weathercumulus clouds or some thin cirrus clouds are all that should be expected, but much of the day will be perfectly clear.
Temperatures are starting out frosty and cold but will rise a decent amount thanks to the sunshine. Afternoon highs will add 20-25 degrees from the morning lows, topping out in the mid 50s.
Winds will come from the north, preventing anything warmer. The wind will not be as blustery as yesterday, with speeds of 5-7 mph and gusts to 20 mph.
Clear skies will lead to rapidly falling temperatures this evening, then a slower, steadier drop tonight. Temperatures should be well into the 40s shortly after sunset and then into the 30s overnight. Areas of frost are likely.
Here is a look at the weather for the next several days:
Sunday: More sunshine. Areas of morning frost. Morning lows in the low and mid 30s. Afternoon highs in the upper 50s.
Monday: Still mostly clear and sunny. Another chance for morning frost. Morning lows in the low and mid 30s. Afternoon highs in the upper 50s.
Tuesday: Some thin clouds possible, depending on the eventual track of Hurricane Teddy toward eastern Canada. Morning lows in the upper 30s. Afternoon highs in the low 60s.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy and warmer. Morning lows near 50. Afternoon highs in the low 70s.
