Cortland Weather Outlook: Thursday, April 22

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Thursday, April 22, 2021:

A raw, windy day is ahead for Cortland County, but it won’t be as snowy or wet as yesterday.

Low pressure will continue to spin today as it moves over northern New England. This will be far enough away to keep any substantial precipitation out of the area.

Still, a few snow showers will be possible from time to time. No accumulation is expected.

Otherwise, this low will keep skies cloudy much of the day and cause a stiff northwest wind to blow. Wind speeds will be 15-20 mph and gusts will be 40-45 mph, especially through the morning.

Despite the clouds and wind, temperatures will crawl upward and will be slightly warmer than yesterday. Look for afternoon highs to reach the upper 30s.

Tonight, the wind will die down and the clouds will start to break up. By midnight, it should become mostly clear and winds will be turning to the west-southwest. A few gusts as high as 20 mph will be possible overnight.

The wind will prevent what would otherwise be a very cold night. Still, temperatures will get down into the mid 20s overnight.

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

Friday: Mostly sunny. Morning lows in the mid 20s. Afternoon highs in the low 50s.

Saturday: Sun early, then clouds in the afternoon. Morning lows in the mid 30s. Afternoon highs near 60.

Sunday: Periods of rain, especially in the morning. Morning lows in the low 40s. Afternoon highs in the low 50s.

Monday: Early clouds, then sunshine. Morning lows in the low 30s. Afternoon highs in the upper 40s.
