Patchy dense fog early gives way to a gorgeous afternoon
Good morning! Here is what you need to know before you go.
Areas of dense fog, as expected, have formed overnight and into early this morning. Some of the fog has reduced visibility locally to near ¼ mile or lower in spots. Where the fog is thickest, use extreme caution and slow down if driving through these areas. Where the fog is occurring, it will take much of the morning to burn off. If you do not have any fog, expect partial sunshine this morning. A dense fog advisory has been issued for parts of CNY. Click here for specifics about this weather alert.
Temperatures this morning range from the upper 40s to lower 50s for most of central New York at sunrise. However, across the North Country, temperatures are colder, in the upper 30s to lower 40s at dawn. Once the sun comes up (and/or burns off the localized fog), temperatures will increase into the middle to upper 60s by the end of the morning.
I am expecting a beautiful afternoon with sunshine mixing with some clouds. Expect above average high temperatures mid to late this afternoon. Syracuse and lower elevations should get into the middle 70s. Higher elevations should hit the lower 70s. The immediate Lake Ontario shoreline communities will be locally cooler.
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.
For Thursday, any localized morning cloud cover and/or fog should give way to sunshine and some clouds alongside enjoyable afternoon high temperatures.
It appears that Friday should still be dry and slightly cooler. We continue to monitor extra cloud coverage and some occasional wet weather that will threaten our area for Friday night through parts of the weekend. At this time, I am hopeful that parts of the weekend will receive dry weather alongside the raindrops.
