As was expected, a new area of low pressure is developing this evening off the east coast as the western system transfer their energy.

For now, this means a bit of a break in the showers for the Finger Lakes. Most of the rain has pivoted to the north. This evening should be mostly dry, but some areas of fog could be possible.

Thursday evening's weather map shows a break in the rain over the Finger Lakes, but more showers- and cold- will move in. Click this image to be taken to the 2014 Fall Fundraiser page!

Overnight, the combined, weakened western low will track east as the coastal low strengthens. Showers will likely move back into the region and linger into Friday morning.

There are some indications that some extra moisture may wrap around the system and enhance the showers Friday morning.

Temperatures Friday morning should be in the upper 30s- still mostly warm enough for just rain. Snow may mix in as the day goes on and colder air is pulled into the storm.

Some minor lake effect will set up as moist, northwest winds rotate around the low. These showers and flurries Friday afternoon will be scattered and generally light. Any lake effect will be short lived as winds turn southerly Friday night ahead of another system which will clip the region on Saturday.
