CENTRAL NEW YORK (WUTR/WFXV/WPNY) – Thursday night in Central New York there is a chance for a brief period of snow that wraps up before daybreak on Friday. A dusting to an inch of snow is possible in most places. Friday is a quieter day with mostly cloudy skies.

Showers are expected to work their way in Friday night and continue off and on throughout the day on Saturday as temperatures surge into the low 60s! A strong cold front moves through though, sending temperatures back into the 30s Saturday night. High winds are expected with gusts of 35-45 MPH possible.

High temperatures are back in the 40s on Sunday, a breezy but quiet end to the weekend. The weather pattern turns quiet for the first half of next week with some sun shining down on CNY.

The pattern for the next two weeks is highly favorable for warmer than normal temperatures and the trend continues to strengthen. Our normal highs for this time of year are in the mid-30s, so that means many days in the 40s (and even 50s) are expected.
