A backdoor cold front will remain nearly stationary just west of the region today with scattered rain showers this morning eventually ending, and additional rain showers and thunderstorms developing later this afternoon and evening, especially in western areas. Much of eastern New York may actually remain dry as we are protected on the east side of the front in a maritime air mass.

The front will eventually lift back north across the region into Thursday and dissipate, allowing a warmer and more humid air mass to arrive on southerly winds. A stronger and slow moving cold front with an associated upper level trough will then track towards the region by late-week, with rain showers and thunderstorms becoming more widespread and even heavy at times by Friday with some flooding possible. Cooler weather will then arrive into the weekend with lingering showers possible early on Saturday, before somewhat more pleasant conditions look to return on Sunday.
