Rain on the Way for the Weekend – Thanks to Remnants of Hurricane Harvey
After dumping a record amount of rain on parts of Texas, it appears the remnants of Hurricane Harvey will bring some rain to our area this weekend - Of course not nearly as much as they received there. According to New York Upstate, what remains of the storm is slowly making its way through the Tennessee and Ohio Valley's and should be in Upstate and Central New York by Saturday night and continue into Sunday (9/3).
The National Weather Service is thinking the remnants of the storm could dump up to 2 inches of rain across our area.
Last weekend forecasters thought a strong north to northwest airflow would have kept the storm from making it this far north, but timing and the airflow altered the forecast significantly.
Currently, weather forecasters are watching yet another hurricane that is forming in the eastern Atlantic. This one is named Hurricane Irma. It's too early to say how she will affect the US -
Here's the National Weather Service forecast for this weekend for Central New York
It will be cloudy and chilly tonight - Low near 40. Sunny tomorrow. High around 72 -
Clouding up with rain developing Saturday night. Low 52 - cloudy skies with rain Sunday. Chilly too - High only 62 -
Looking ahead to Labor Day. Mostly sunny and warmer. High 81.
