Cortland Weather Outlook: Thursday, April 29

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Thursday, April 29, 2021:

The frontal boundary that has been the focus for our weather all week will sink just south of the region this morning. Low pressure will then move along the front later today.

As the front passes through this morning, clouds will be plentiful and scattered showers will be possible. Those showers will become more widespread around midday and turn into a steadier rain for the afternoon as the low approaches.

Rain will continue into the evening hours, with a few heavier downpours possible in the late afternoon and early evening. A rumble of thunder cannot be ruled out.

Rain amounts could approach or exceed an inch where the heavier downpours develop.

With the front nearby, winds will be light from the east and northeast. Wind speeds will mostly be near or under 5 mph, but may increase slightly for the late afternoon and evening.

As the low passes by this evening, winds will turn to the northwest and increase to near 10 mph.

Temperatures will not move much today, holding steady in the upper 50s. Once winds turn to the northwest, temperatures will fall into the 40s.
