Conditions for this weekend at Watkins Glen have remained mostly as expected, with a shift of precipitation from Friday to Saturday. A surface low pressure system located off the Atlantic coast will cause winds to be largely from the south to southeast on Friday, bringing moisture off the ocean and resulting in mostly cloudy to overcast conditions. The increased moisture may also cause a slight chance for isolated showers in the region, especially in the afternoon. On Saturday, a cold front extending south from a surface low located over Canada is expected to move through the region, bringing a higher chance for precipitation during the afternoon. Winds behind the front will shift to the west to northwest, cooling temperatures into Sunday with cloud cover decreasing through the day as drier air moves in.
