The Finger Lakes will likely miss out on some more active weather this afternoon as showers and thunderstorms develop over central New York and move eastward.
These showers and thunderstorms will develop in response to a disturbance in the upper levels of the atmosphere. This disturbance was over West Virginia this morning and should track over or just east of the Finger Lakes later today. Showers and thunderstorms will develop in the hot and humid air ahead of the disturbance, with only some isolated showers further west over the Finger Lakes.
Showers will be possible in the Finger Lakes from the mid-morning hours into the late afternoon, but most areas will probably see very little to no rain today.
If any thunderstorms do manage to develop- most likely in the early afternoon, before the disturbance arrives- there will be a small chance of some strong to severe storms with gusty winds being the primary concern. Again though, it is unlikely that any storms will even develop over our area.
A limited severe threat does exist further east as well where thunderstorms will be more plentiful.
Thursday and Friday look dry before a cold front brings widespread showers and thunderstorms on Saturday.
