Breezy and cool Wednesday

Wednesday will be breezy and cool as below normal temperatures settle into the Finger Lakes and stick around until Sunday.

Much like last Wednesday, the Finger Lakes has slid from summer back to early spring with well below normal temperatures settling into the region.

Unlike last week, when it was mostly a one-day stay, this chilly air will be in no hurry to move out.

Cool air will continue to stream south today on a breezy northwest wind, which could gust over 25 mph at times. Clouds will also remain in place for most of the day, though some sun should be expected late in the afternoon. Only a few drips of rain are expected here and there throughout the day, with not enough falling even where it does rain to wet the pavement.

There is a slightly better chance for a pavement-wetting shower tonight, but again, many areas will probably see little to no rain. Regardless of any rain, the clouds should re-thicken this evening, which will help keep temperatures in the low 40s tonight.

Thursday should see more sun than Wednesday and the temperatures will push towards 60º as a result. However, another cold front will slip through on Friday morning with a shower or two and afternoon highs in the mid 50s. Saturday looks sunny, with temperatures again reaching near 60º.

Finally on Sunday, temperatures will return to normal, with highs near 70º and even warmer as we head into early next week.
