Weather this weekend in Upstate NY: Active and warm for Easter


No threat of rain until the end of the weekend.

Sunrise services for Easter look dry but again we might have to dodge a few isolated showers or thunderstorms during the afternoon but it is only about a 20% chance. By Easter brunch many central and southern communities will be in the lower 70s. This time, it's a cold front that triggers the rain and thunder. Partly cloudy, with a low around 60. Temperatures will warm fast with highs reaching the low 80s in the afternoon!

A cold front will move through Sunday evening and night, with a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm.

The risk for showers and thunderstorms returns today, but it won't be a washout!

Saturday: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 9am. As we head into the holiday weekend most of us will stay dry on Saturday as a weak front slides into far northwest Oklahoma. Thunderstorm chances will increase with the overnight storms, although none should be severe. Southwest wind 6 to 9 miles per hour. Partly sunny, with a high near 80.

Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 66.

Friday night's low will be 57 degrees, with another chance for rain. A few showers and possibly a thunderstorm are possible in the afternoon and early evening hours, primarily in the mountains and western parts of the Upstate/northeast Georgia. By Sunday afternoon, highs will be well into the 70s. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 53.

The front is expected to stall across SC on Tuesday and Wednesday, keeping showers in the forecast.

Saturday night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 56 degrees. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 78. Partly cloudy, with a low around 63.
