Cortland Weather Outlook: Tuesday, May 4

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Tuesday, May 4, 2021:

A stalled out frontal boundary will remain over the region today, but with one low pressure well to the east and a second well to the west, most of the day will be rather quiet.

Clouds will be plentiful throughout the day, but a few breaks of sunshine will be possible from time to time. The best chance for some of these sunny breaks will be through the mid and late afternoon.

Likewise, there will be a stray shower here and there to contend with. Most areas will see little to no rain during the daytime hours, though.

The amount of sunshine will actually influence the development of most of the shower activity tomorrow. More sun means more showers, mainly in the hours just before and just after sunset. A rumble of thunder cannot be totally ruled out, either.

Despite the ample cloud cover and late day showers that any sunshine will trigger, highs will push toward 70 degrees this afternoon. Evening and nighttime hours will stick close to 60 degrees.

Winds will be light and variable today with speeds generally near or under 5 mph and wind directions ranging from the southeast to the southwest and even west at times.

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

Wednesday: Cloudy with periods of rain, especially in the morning. Morning temperatures in the low 60s, falling to near 50 in the afternoon.

Thursday: Mostly sunny. Morning lows in the upper 30s. Afternoon highs in the low 50s.

Friday: Morning rain, possibly starting with a little snow mixing in. Morning lows in the mid 30s. Afternoon highs in the mid 40s.

Saturday: Sun and clouds. Morning lows in the low 30s. Afternoon highs near 50.
