Cortland Weather Outlook: Wednesday, June 23

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Wednesday, June 23, 2021:

High pressure will build into the Mid-Atlantic, allowing milder air to begin its return to our region. 

Sunshine this morning will help temperatures warm quickly from a chilly start. As the surface warms, cold air will still be present aloft. Puffy cumulus clouds should rapidly develop during the mid and late morning hours.

These clouds will cover most of the sky from the late morning through the mid-afternoon. With the high pressure in control and a relatively dry atmosphere, no rain is expected from any of these clouds, though.

Late in the afternoon, the difference between the surface temperature and the temperature aloft will decrease and the clouds will dissipate. By sunset, skies will probably be mostly clear.

Light northwest winds will blow at near or just above 5 mph today. Top gusts will be around 20 mph.

Afternoon highs will still be a bit below the seasonal average, but not as raw as yesterday. Look for highs in the upper 60s to around 70 degrees.

A quick drop into the 50s should be expected this evening with overnight temperatures dipping into the upper 40s.

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

Thursday: Mostly sunny. Morning lows in the upper 40s. Afternoon highs in the mid 70s.

Friday: Mostly sunny. A few late clouds. Morning lows in the low 50s. Afternoon highs near 80.

Saturday: Sun and clouds. Maybe a late shower or storm. Morning lows in the low 60s. Afternoon highs in the low 80s.

Sunday: Partly cloudy. Small chance for an isolated shower or storm. Morning lows in the upper 60s. Afternoon highs in the upper 80s.
