Your Cortland County weather forecast for Friday, November 12, 2021:

A strong weather system over Canada is pushing a band of rain through this morning, but conditions will improve for the afternoon.

Rain, heavy at times, will continue into the mid-morning hours. The rain should come to a rather abrupt end between 9-11 am and the rest of the day will turn out dry.

Clouds will linger for up to a couple more hours after the rain ends before skies turn sunny. Mostly clear skies this afternoon will persist into the evening before new clouds move in overnight.

The strong winds from overnight will persist for a few more hours but should shift to the west and lose speed shortly before the rain ends. 

Until that happens, gusts from the southeast will continue to approach 40 mph. Wind speeds the rest of the day will be 5-10 mph with gusts around 20 mph.
