Cortland Weather Outlook: Wednesday, November 17

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Wednesday, November 17, 2021:

A warm front will lift through the region today but with just a few stray showers.

Clouds will be plentiful throughout the day, but the sun may be able to shine through the clouds at times as some thinner patches move through. This will especially be the case through the morning hours.

On the flip side, the best chance for a few stray showers will come this afternoon. Any showers should move out of the area by the evening, though at least some thin clouds will remain in place.

Winds will turn from the southeast this morning to the south this afternoon and evening. Wind speeds will increase to around 10 mph, though some hilltops may see stronger winds. Top gusts will be around 25 mph with hilltops gusting to near 30 mph.

The warm air will have a hard time making it into the area, though. While warmer than days past, highs will still struggle to get into the upper 40s. Some higher elevations may stick closer to 45 degrees.

Temperatures will only drop a couple degrees, or may even stay mostly steady, during the evening and overnight hours. Much of the time it will be near or above 45 degrees.

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

Thursday: Periods of rain, possibly ending with a little snow mixing in. Morning lows in the mid 40s. Midday highs in the upper 50s.

Friday: Mostly cloudy. Scattered snow showers. Morning lows in the upper 20s. Afternoon highs in the upper 30s.

Saturday: Sunshine and thin clouds. Morning lows in the mid 20s. Afternoon highs in the upper 30s.

Sunday: Clouds and a few breaks of sun. Morning lows in the low 30s. Afternoon highs in the mid 40s.
