Cortland Weather Outlook: Monday, December 6

Your Cortland County weather forecast for Monday, December 6, 2021:

Strong winds will continue today, accompanied by a cold front that will bring rain and a late drop in temperatures.

Scattered rain showers out ahead of the front will be possible this morning. As the front draws closer, the rain will increase during the midday and early afternoon hours. Several hours of steadier rain are possible during this time.

The rain will become more scattered again in the mid and late afternoon hours. This evening, a few snow showers will be possible, with little to no accumulation expected.

Winds will not be quite as strong as last night, but still plenty blustery. Ahead of the front during the morning and midday hours, winds will be from the south at 10-15 mph. A few gusts could reach 35 mph.

The wind will shift to the west-southwest behind the front and will continue to blow at 10-15 mph. Most gusts will be near or under 30 mph, but a few isolated stronger gusts are not out of the question.

Temperatures have been on the rise overnight and will continue to increase. Highs will come during the midday or early afternoon at around 50 degrees. 

A slight drop to the upper 40s will take place during the afternoon. Cold air will arrive in earnest at about the same time the sun sets, so a rapid drop the mid 30s will take place between 4-6 PM.

The temperature will continue to fall, reaching 30 degrees around midnight, and the mid 20s by the predawn hours.
