Rain is moving away from the Finger Lakes this morning. Besides some showers this afternoon along a cold front, most of the day should be fairly quiet.

The majority of the rain associated with a complex storm system has stayed to the south of the Finger Lakes. What is falling across the region is moving away as dry air moves in from the southwest.Temperatures mid-morning were mostly in the mid and upper 30s across the Finger Lakes. Expect a rise of only a few degrees as the warm air to our southwest slides east across Pennsylvania and makes little progress northward. Upper 30s and low 40s will be the highest most of the region sees today.

While the rain is moving away from us this morning, the day will not remain perfectly dry. This afternoon, a few more showers will be possible as a cold front moves through. Some drizzle or a brief shower will also be possible at most any time today, but for the most part, it will be quiet today.

Energy from the low pressure shown in the map will drop down across our area tonight as cold air moves in. This will spell some snow showers, mostly overnight, with little more than a coating of accumulation. A few flurries will linger into the morning hours southeast of Lake Ontario, but Sunday too should be quiet overall.

Warm weather returns briefly on Monday ahead of the next weather system.
