Scattered rain & storms to start the work week

Clouds will increase Wednesday evening and rain may enter into Central New York before the sun rises Thursday morning.

It looks like we have more spring rains headed our way as a frontal boundary is expected to stall across our area.

A cold front passes offshore in the morning on Tuesday, followed by clearing skies on the heels of a drying air mass from the Ohio River Valley.

However, the showers are expected to ease on Wednesday and Thursday, with temperatures hitting the mid-twenties on Thursday.

Communities that receive the higher rainfall totals could be looking at some minor flash flooding problems in low lying and poor drainage areas. Highs today reach into the mid to upper 50s.

The rain moved out by early afternoon, and temperatures in most areas climbed well into the 60s despite a persistent overcast.

STAYING RAINY, CLOUDY: Rain chances come back Wednesday with slightly higher winds at 5-10MPH.

While it will become drier and brighter with sunny spells as the day goes on, the showers are due to appear again in the afternoon. Winds SW/NW around 5 miles per hour.

Computer models show heavy showers and storms moving through Monday. We are mostly cloudy and dry through midnight, whereafter showers will begin to move into the area from the west. Rain showers continue overnight, with mild temperatures ranging from 55 to 60 degrees and a southeast wind at about 10 miles per hour. Highs will be in the low-70s. Winds: S 5-10 miles per hour. Highs in the lower 70s.

Tuesday: Rain with a possible thunderstorm (60%). Northeast winds at 9 miles per hour.
