Much warmer Monday, but it won’t last

Much warmer air will move into the Finger Lakes today with highs pushing towards 50º. The warm weather will be short lived thanks to a cold front that will move through on Tuesday.

A couple of morning flurries will be possible today, but it is a small price to pay for the rest of today’s weather. Warm air is surging northward across the Midwest and upper Great Lakes, with temperatures well into the 40s and 50s before the sun is even up across these areas.

A warm front will lift through the Finger Lakes this morning, possibly touching off a few light flurries. We will, however, tap into some of that warm air today, despite skies remaining mostly cloudy throughout the day.

Temperatures should be well into the 40s for most areas, but I do think a few places will touch 50º or get even warmer, especially if some sun can manage to break out.

The warm weather will retreat as quickly as it came though. A cold front will pass through tomorrow with rain and snow showers and temperatures into the 30s. Wednesday will be even colder, with morning lows in the teens and highs in the 20s.

Thursday morning will be cold, with some areas slipping into the single digits, but highs should return to the 30s. The next chance for rain or snow after Tuesday will not come until later Friday and/or Saturday.
