Friday will be a rather enjoyable day across the Finger Lakes with high pressure in control of our weather.

The primary center of high pressure is located over Virgina this morning, which will allow a slight southwest flow to set up over the region. This, along with some pre-dawn clouds, have helped keep temperatures mostly in the 20s and upper teens to start the day.

I expect the cloud cover to burn off this morning, leaving us with a good deal of sunshine throughout most of the day.

Temperatures should be able to rise into the low 30s with the sun and southwest breeze.

Meanwhile, a large storm system over the Deep South will start to head up the East Coast overnight into Saturday. This will be a non event for most of the Finger Lakes, but areas east of a Corning-Ithaca-Cortland line could see a few flurries on Saturday from this system with no real accumulation.

Temperatures on Saturday should also be in the 30s before cooler air starts to work in on Sunday.
