Cortland Weather Outlook: Thursday, April 15

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Thursday, April 15, 2021:

Low pressure over the Great Lakes will creep eastward, spawning a new low along the Mid-Atlantic coast as it does. This will send us back into a cool, showery pattern.

Rain will gradually expand across the area this morning and will linger well into the afternoon. The rain should eventually come to an end for the most part, but probably not until after 3 PM.

Even once the steadier rain ends, a few more showers will be possible into the evening hours. A few wet snowflakes may even mix in over higher elevations.

Dry air will move in, ending the precipitation completely by the late evening.

Northwest winds will blow steadily today at 5-10 mph. Top gusts will reach around 20 mph.
