Cortland Weather Outlook: Friday, February 5

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Friday, February 5, 2021:

A warm front early this morning will bring in a brief spike in temperatures, but an afternoon cold front will quickly put it to an end.

Snow out ahead of the warm front will fall early this morning. A little freezing rain could mix in at times. The snow should be over by mid-morning, with accumulations around an inch.

Travel may be briefly impacted by the snow with some slick roads, but conditions will vastly improve for the latter half of the morning.

That is when temperatures will start to push through the 30s. A little sun may even show for a time. Highs will reach around 40 degrees during the early afternoon.

After 2 PM, a cold front will move through. A brief burst of snow could accompany the front, with a few scattered flurries lingering off and on through the rest of the afternoon and evening. No more than a coating of accumulation is expected through Saturday morning.

Temperatures will start to drop back through the 30s behind the front and will end up in the 20s this evening. By Saturday morning, temperatures should be all the way down into the mid teens.
