An area of rain will move into the Finger Lakes this morning from the Great Lakes, but should be east of the region by mid afternoon.

For the most part, both the radar and short term, high resolution models seem to indicate that the weather in the Finger Lakes this morning will be showery, but not excessive.

Scattered areas of rain along a front are moving east into the Finger Lakes. Some heavier downpours may still develop embedded within this area of rain. While normally such a downpour would not be a major concern, areas that have been hit hard lately by heavy rain and flooding have a very low tolerance for additional rain. Even one half to three quarters of an inch in under an hour may cause flash flooding.

This area of rain should depart the region during the early afternoon hours. Some sun may even break through the clouds for the later part of the day. Temperatures will only rise a few degrees, with highs mostly in the mid 70s.

Wednesday looks dry before a chance for some more thunderstorms on Thursday.
