Temperatures heading back below normal

A series of cold fronts will push through the Finger Lakes today, bringing rain and, yes, a few flurries to the region.

Just as the world was starting to turn from white to brown to green, and just as everyone was getting used to t-shirts and not needing jackets, today happens.

A pair of cold fronts will slide through the Finger Lakes today, bringing cold, and then colder air back into our region. Rain showers should be expected on and off throughout Wednesday and into Thursday. Only, by the time we get to Thursday, some of those rain showers will fall as snow showers.

As far as accumulating snow goes, except for maybe a slight coating on some of the highest elevations in the region, generally speaking the snow won’t stick. And while we tend to get this sort of set back for at least a day or two each April (or May), this is still a rather rude interruption to what had been a few very nice weeks.

High temperatures today will manage the upper 40s to near 50ยบ today, but Thursday and Friday each will struggle to even reach the low to mid 40s. Unfortunately, looking a bit further out, temperatures will be remaining below normal for the majority of the remainder of April.
