Your Cortland County weather forecast for Monday, April 4, 2022:

A small area of ​​high pressure will move in today, keeping conditions dry but still cloudy.

Moisture left over from yesterday’s weather system will be trapped under the high pressure. This will lead to thick, low clouds for much of the day.

If there is sun today, it will likely be in the afternoon when some of the moisture can dissipate. A new area of ​​cloud higher in the atmosphere will move in by then, so at best some filtered sunshine may be possible.

However, with the high pressure in place, precipitation should be limited to morning drizzle and fog, especially at higher elevations. Most areas will stay dry all day.

Winds will be northwesterly behind yesterday’s low. The morning wind speed will be 5-10 mph, but the afternoon will be closer to 5 mph. The best gusts of the day will only arrive at around 20 mph, occurring early in the morning.

With northwesterly winds and cloud cover, temperatures will unsurprisingly be kept under control. Look for highs just under 45 degrees. Higher elevations in the northern and eastern parts of the county can stick to the low 40s.

Evening temperatures will drop back down to the mid 30s with some colder pockets in the low 30s. The temperature will hover around this range throughout the night.

Here is an overview of the weather forecast for the next few days:

Tuesday: Clouds and maybe some sun in the morning. Morning lows in the low 30s. Afternoon highs in the 50s.

Wednesday: Rain showers possible. Morning lows in the upper 30s. Afternoon highs in the mid 50s.

Thusday: Likely rain. Morning lows in the low 40s. Afternoon highs in the mid 40s.

Friday: Mostly cloudy with a few scattered showers. Morning lows in the upper 30s. Afternoon highs in the mid 50s.
