Your Cortland County weather forecast for Tuesday, September 29, 2020:
Much needed rain will fall throughout the day today as a cold front moves through, followed by a low pressure moving north along the front.
The front will move through by mid-morning, continuing scattered rain showers that are already in the area. The front will be slow moving, and rain showers may continue into the late morning or even early afternoon hours.
The best chance for a break in the rain will be from the early to the mid afternoon. Later on, as the low tracks north along the front, rain will become widespread and steady. This rain will last through the evening and deep into the overnight.
Total rain amounts may exceed an inch locally, and if the rain this morning lingers into the early afternoon, as much as two inches is not out of the question.
Temperatures will be at their warmest just before the front moves through this morning with highs in the upper 60s. Behind the front, temperatures will drop to near 60 or the upper 50s and remain there the rest of the day.
Winds will be blustery from the south early this morning before turning to the west and northwest and decreasing. Much of the day, the wind may be nearly calm.
Here is a look at the weather for the next several days:
Wednesday: A few showers early, then some late sun. Morning lows in the low 50s. Afternoon highs near 60.
Thursday: Sun, clouds, and possibly a few showers. Breezy. Morning lows near 50. Afternoon highs near 60.
Friday: More clouds than sun with scattered showers. Morning lows in the low 40s. Afternoon highs in the mid 50s.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy with a few showers. Morning lows in the low 40s. Afternoon highs in the mid 50s.
