Cortland Weather Outlook: Tuesday, July 13

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Tuesday, July 13, 2021:

A stalled out frontal boundary will sit over the region today, keeping showers and storms in the forecast.

The morning hours will be quiet with some sunshine mixing in with clouds. 

As the day goes on, an impulse of energy will track along the front and interact with the warm and humid air in place. This should lead to clusters of scattered thunderstorms developing through the afternoon.

Flash flooding will be a concern with the storms, as will strong winds. Isolated wind damage will be possible, and even a brief, weak tornado cannot be totally ruled out.

The best chance for storms will come through the second half of the afternoon. The activity should quickly dissipate as the sun sets, with just a few showers after dark.

Winds will be from the south at 5-10 mph today. A slight shift to the south-southeast will be possible later in the day. Gusts will reach 20-25 mph, but may be higher in any thunderstorms.

Before the storms develop, temperatures should reach around 80 degrees with muggy dewpoints in the low 70s. Tonight, temperatures will gradually fall through the 70s, but will not drop into the 60s.

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

Wednesday: Sun and clouds with afternoon showers and storms. Morning lows near 70. Afternoon highs in the upper 70s.

Thursday: Sun and clouds. Morning lows in the mid 60s. Afternoon highs in the low 80s.

Friday: Sun and clouds with late showers and storms. Morning lows in the mid 60s. Afternoon highs in the mid 80s.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy. Maybe a couple showers, mostly early on. Morning lows in the mid 60s. Afternoon highs in the upper 70s.
