Your Cortland County weather forecast for Monday, March 29, 2021:
High pressure will build into the region today, leading to vastly different morning and afternoon conditions.
This morning, skies will be filled with thick, low clouds. Snow showers are likely, especially early on. The snow won’t be too heavy, but a dusting of accumulation will be possible.

The wind will weaken this afternoon and dry air will overtake the region. During the early afternoon, skies will break and become sunny. After a morning filled with clouds, much of the afternoon may end up without any clouds at all.
Wind directions will remain from the northwest, but speeds will drop to around 10 mph by 5 PM with gusts no higher than 25 mph.
