Cortland Weather Outlook: Sunday, May 2

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Sunday, May 2, 2021:

A frontal boundary will sit over the region today keeping the weather unsettled.

While there may be a few breaks of sunshine, especially this morning, most of the day will be cloudy with scattered showers.

The rain chances will gradually increase through the morning with on and off periods of rain for the first half of this afternoon.

The front should creep northward by the late afternoon, moving the focal point for rain just north of the area. Still, a few more scattered showers will continue into the evening hours.

Winds will be variable through the day due to the close proximity of the front. Southwest, west, and northwest winds will be possible throughout the day. Speeds will generally be 5-10 mph or less, and top gusts on the day should be 20-25 mph.

Temperatures may be warmest during the late morning hours before the rain becomes more widespread. Highs at this time should reach the mid 60s. Low 60s or even upper 50s will be more likely during the afternoon.

If the front ends up just 20 miles further north though, mid or even upper 60s could move back into the region.

Nighttime temperatures should stick near or just above 50 degrees.
