Cortland Weather Outlook: Monday, October 19

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Monday, October 19, 2020:

A wave of low pressure moving along a front will bring a rainy day to our region today.

The steadiest rain will fall through the mid and late morning hours. Showers will linger on and off through the afternoon, with just a few isolated showers tonight.

Sunshine is not expected, but if any does manage to peek out, it will do so late in the afternoon.

The front will be draped to our northeast, so winds will be steadily from the south today at 5-10 mph. Gusts should remain under 20 mph, though.

The south wind will increase this evening, coinciding with the drop off in precipitation. Wind speeds will be around 10 mph with gusts to 25 mph.

Temperatures will not rise much during the daytime hours today, reaching just the low 50s. This evening, temperatures will push into the mid 50s thanks to the increasing winds and decreasing rainfall.

Mid 50s may last until or just after sunrise Tuesday before the front moves through. More rain ahead of the front is likely during the predawn hours.

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

Tuesday: Early showers with lingering clouds. Maybe a little sun late. Morning temperatures start in the mid 50s, then drop to near 50. Afternoon highs in the mid 50s.
