Localized patchy valley fog gives way to sunshine & warmth
Good morning! Here is what you need to know before you go.
Mainly clear skies overnight has led to widespread dew and localized areas of patchy dense fog, especially across fog prone locations and valleys. The most widespread fog is over portions of the central and southern tier and Mohawk Valley. If you drive through any areas of dense fog, you should slow down and turn on your hazard lights in order to lower the chance for a vehicle accident.
Temperatures will mainly be in the middle 40s for most of central New York at sunrise. Numbers will rise into the lower 60s by the end of the morning.
I am expecting a beautiful afternoon with mainly sunny skies alongside seasonable temperatures. Expect late afternoon highs to be between 70 and 75. However, expect cooler afternoon highs along and just inland of the Lake Ontario shoreline.
I have attached a video forecast showing an hour-by-hour progression of today’s weather place-by-place across central New York plus your 7 day forecast. This video also shows you some of the foggy locations before sunrise.
I am expecting a new weather system to enter our area for Tuesday. This should allow for some occasional showers and localized thunderstorms to fall. For Wednesday, after some morning fog and low clouds, sunshine and warmth will return. It is possible that temperatures could get much warmer by the end of the week.
