Clouds, drizzle and a few showers will persist across the Finger Lakes on Monday, especially during the earlier half of the day.

Abundant moisture left behind from this weekend’s storm system, along with some atmospheric energy as the storm continues to pull away, will keep the Finger Lakes cloudy throughout most of Monday. If we see any sun today, it will not be until late in the day. Any clearing will be short lived though, as clouds ahead of our next system move in.

In addition to the clouds, a few showers or some drizzle will continue this morning. Gradually, this precipitation will dry up and the showers will diminish.With the clouds and showers, temperatures will remain well below normal, with highs in the upper 60s to just around 70ยบ.

A few additional showers are likely after midnight tonight as a warm front lifts north through the region.

Low pressure will track from the Midwest across the lower Great Lakes on Tuesday. Any sun we get Tuesday morning will help fuel some thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and early evening. Winds in the mid levels of the atmosphere are forecast to be strong, so any storms that do form will have the potential to produce some strong winds or hail.

Additionally, while the atmosphere will not be excessively moisture laden, the ground across the Finger Lakes and especially in the Southern Tier is very moist, so any heavy rain could raise some flooding concerns.
