MONDAY MORNING WEATHER FORECAST UPDATE :
TODAY: Skies are mostly clear across our area early this morning. This has allowed some areas of patchy fog to form, especially across the most fog prone deeper valleys. If you have patchy fog, it will burn off. Otherwise, expect plenty of sunshine with some developing clouds.During the afternoon, it will be hazy, hot and humid with a mixture of sunshine and clouds. I cannot rule out a random, wildly isolated, hit or miss type, random thunderstorm at any time during the afternoon. However, the highest risk for scattered thunderstorms comes late this afternoon into this evening and tonight. Afternoon temperatures today will likely get into the upper 80s to lower 90s across the entire area with slightly lower numbers near the immediate shoreline of Lake Ontario. The high temperature for Syracuse will at least get to 90 degrees and will likely settle between 90 and 95 degrees. The maximum heat index today will be between 98 and 103 degrees.
TONIGHT: Expect on and off scattered showers and thunderstorms with muggy conditions. Low near 73. Wind: SSW 5-10 MPH.
TUESDAY: It will remain humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms during the morning. Thereafter, the dew point and humidity factor will fall to a more comfortable level by late Tuesday afternoon. Clouds should give way to some afternoon sunshine. It will become breezy. High near 82. Wind: SSW 7-15 shifting to NW 10-20 MPH with gusts to 30 MPH.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy with a chance for a brief passing lake effect sprinkle or shower especially south of Lake Ontario and west of I-81. Low near 59.
WEDNESDAY: Localized lake effect clouds south of Lake Ontario and over the Finger Lakes early in the morning. Otherwise, sunshine combines with puffy fair weather cumulus clouds. Very comfortable with below normal temperatures. High near 75.
