The cold front that brought periods of moderate to heavy rainfall to portions of the region overnight Saturday is now well east of the region this morning. An upper level disturbance, and associated trough of low pressure at the surface, will sweep across northern New York and New England through the day today. This may spell some increase in cloud cover from time to time across the region today, though generally partly sunny conditions are expected. A brisk northwest breeze will pick up during the morning and should last through the afternoon hours. With temperatures struggling to make it through the 60’s, it will feel markedly cooler today.
High pressure will build into the region later this evening, and will last through the coming work week. Temperatures will start out the forecast period below normal, trending to slightly above normal by late in the week.
