The low pressure that gave us the heavy rain and strong winds along with a rare late November thunderstorm has moved to northern New York state and will cause mostly cloudy skies with a low chance of an afternoon light shower. Temperatures will fall from 50 this morning down to the mid 40s by sunset. Winds will be brisk but not as windy as yesterday with gusts to 30 mph.
Dry weather with near seasonable temperatures Wednesday and Thursday as high pressure builds into our area.
The weather from Friday through the weekend will be unsettled with very low agreement among the computer models so there is a much lower confidence on the forecast than usual. As of now we will predict a chance of rain each day with even some snow mixed with rain late Saturday night into Sunday morning.
