A (mostly) pleasant weather week ahead for the Finger Lakes

Much of the week will be enjoyable for the Finger Lakes, with low chances for precipitation and temperatures near or slightly above normal.

It is hard to remember the last time the Finger Lakes had a week’s worth of weather this enjoyable.

Temperatures will be at or above normal for the majority of the week with few chances for precipitation. A couple flurries or showers may be possible early Monday, but the sun should come out in the afternoon as temperatures push towards 40ยบ.

Clouds will rethicken Monday night as two storm systems, one to our north and the other to our south, start to pass by. Neither system will be close enough to bring significant precipitation to the area, though a stray flurry or drizzly shower could be possible Tuesday into Wednesday morning.

The sun should return Wednesday afternoon and continue into Thursday. While highs Tuesday and Wednesday will be well into the 40s, Thursday will be a slight set back with highs in the 30s.

With most of the week quiet, I will be closely watching the end of the week over the coming days. A storm system over the Deep South will try to move north Friday into early Saturday. Uncertainties remain on how far north this system may make it, and, if it does reach the Finger Lakes, what the precipitation will fall as. There is at least an outside chance it could snow, but right now, a significant snow seems to have a very low chance of happening.
