Expect wet, windy weather for the north valley's Monday


Under continued bright skies, Wednesday and Thursday will feature highs in the deep 70s to locally, on the mainland, 80s.

It has been a busy morning across Central NY with strong winds causing tree damage as well as power outages. Winds will gust out of the west well over 30 miles per hour tonight and up to 40 miles per hour tomorrow. Lows will be in the lower 40s with west winds 10 to 15 miles per hour.

It's going to be a wet Monday in the north valley, but the forecast is for scattered showers. Another (stronger) front arrives over the weekend with widespread rain and another chance for severe weather. A few areas could see wind gusts of 60 miles per hour.

First of all for Monday night we will have some cloud cover lingering with lows from the upper 10s to lower 20s. Highs stay on the cool side, while much warmer than Sunday, shooting for 56 degrees in Springfield. Local gusts to 75 miles per hour. Winds increase in the afternoon. As temperatures drop Wednesday night into Thursday morning we could see some snowflakes mixed in with the raindrops. Sunday high temperatures will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s. So we will enjoy drier conditions underneath clear skies today and most of tomorrow as well. No outdoor burning! Highs will be seasonal, but cooler on Wednesday, expect middle 60's. They will pick back up on Friday and into the weekend ahead of yet another upper-level low that will move into the Rockies.
