Cortland Weather Outlook: Friday, November 26

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Friday, November 26, 2021:

A cold front is moving through the area early this morning and will set the stage for some snowy weather. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from the National Weather Service.

Temperatures will be in the mid 30s for the morning hours with some on and off snow showers. Road conditions should remain in good shape through the midday hours.

By the afternoon, the snow will increase in coverage and intensity and temperatures will drop. Higher elevations could dip below freezing shortly after noon with the rest of the county following suite through the early afternoon.

This will lead to deteriorating road conditions, though main roads will probably not get to sloppy until the late afternoon as temperatures drop into the upper 20s.

Periods of snow will persist into the evening and only gradually let up overnight. Several inches are likely, especially in the hills of the northern part of the county, where the chances for heavy lake effect bands will be highest. Some areas could see six inches or more.

In addition to the snow and falling temperatures, it will also be windy. Northwest winds will blow with speeds around 15 mph and gusts of 35-40 mph. This will reduce visibility and further deteriorate road conditions, especially after sunset.

Temperatures will bottom out in the mid 20s overnight as the snow tapers off to flurries.

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

Saturday: A few early flurries. Some sun. Morning lows in the mid 20s. Afternoon highs in the upper 20s.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy with widespread light snow, especially late. An inch or two of accumulation possible. Morning lows in the low 20s. Afternoon highs in the low 30s.

Monday: Mostly cloudy with a few breaks of sun. Morning lows in the upper 10s. Afternoon highs in the low 30s.

Tuesday: Cloudy with snow showers. Morning lows in the mid 20s. Afternoon highs in the mid 30s.
