Your Cortland County weather forecast for Monday, August 14, 2023:
A new area of low pressure will creep towards the region today, but the daytime hours at least should remain dry.
A deck of clouds high in the atmosphere will move in out ahead of the low. These clouds will be with us throughout the day but will be thin enough to allow some sunlight to shine through at times.
Late in the day, the clouds will get thicker as rain starts to approach the region. The first drips and drops will occur in the hours after sunset.
Steadier rain is likely after midnight and into early Tuesday morning. The rain should not be too heavy and nothing more than a stray rumble of thunder is expected.
Winds will be light today with speeds mostly under 5 mph. During the morning, winds will be from the northwest, but will then turn to the north, then east during the afternoon. Light east winds will persist into the evening and overnight.
