Your Cortland County weather forecast for Monday, November 22, 2021:
A morning cold front will sweep through the area but with little fanfare.
Just a few scattered showers, which will be turning to flurries, are expected through the morning hours. The precipitation will be light, spotty, and brief.
By this afternoon, skies will become mixed with some breaks of sun between clouds. A few more stray flurries will be possible, but anything that does manage to fall from the sky will be insignificant.
Skies will be partly cloudy at first this evening. During the middle of the night, a band of lake effect will drop south off Lake Ontario. This will bring some snow showers in for the second half of the night with most areas seeing no more than a light dusting of accumulation.
Winds will shift from the southwest very early on this morning to the west, then northwest by midday. Northwest winds will blow steadily through the afternoon before shifting to the west early this evening. After midnight, north-northwest winds will take back over.
Wind speeds during the daytime hours will be near or just above 10 mph. Top gusts will come in around 25 mph.
Temperatures will stick to the upper 30s early this morning, but as the winds shift, cooler air will work in. By midday, it will be in the mid 30s, where it will hover through the afternoon. A quick drop into the mid 20s will take hold once the sun sets with steady temperatures overnight.
