WATCH: The rain continues Friday night; the weather is slow to improve this weekend
SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV)
The rain continues overnight and Saturday morning. Troughs are close to 40.
Friday’s storm system is slow and lurks just off the northeast coast from Saturday to Sunday, which has implications for our weather for the start of the holiday weekend.
There is still a lot of humidity in the lower atmosphere due to the constant rain on Friday so we are concerned that the clouds will remain for much of Saturday. There could also be some light rain or drizzle from southern Syracuse on Saturday morning.
There may be breaks allowing for some sun later in the afternoon and particularly north of Syracuse further from the low along the coast. Temperatures only manage to reach around 60 (which is better than Friday but still cool).
Low pressure begins to move north parallel to the New England coast on Sunday. Looks like the low is further west as it does. This will cause showers in and around CNY. Temperatures remain cool with more clouds than sun.
The best day of the holiday weekend when it comes to weather is always Memorial Day itself.
The low pressure is finally moving away from the coast and we will have a better chance of drying out the lower atmosphere, resulting in more sunshine and warmer, more seasonal temperatures. We can start with clouds, but we see some sun cutouts. Monday is your best day outdoors, whether you’re going to services or planning a barbecue.
If you are planning to go to the beach, keep in mind that the air temperatures are only in the 70s and the water temperatures are between 40 and 50. We will have to wait until at least until in the middle of the week to make us feel more summery. again.
