Warm start to week for Finger Lakes

High pressure moving off the coast of New England will help push warmer air north early this week before a cold front comes through Wednesday.

The stretch of nice weather will continue for the Finger Lakes for a little while longer.

High pressure will still have a strong influence on our weather Monday and Tuesday, even as it drifts out to sea off the coast of New England. Southerly winds on the backside of the high will help keep temperatures on the upward trend.

High temperatures should push into the low and mid 80s for most of the Finger Lakes today, with a few more degrees tacked on for Tuesday’s highs.

There will be a very small chance for a couple of isolated showers as a disorganized system over the Mid-Atlantic spins some extra moisture and lift toward our region. However, the vast majority of the area will remain dry both Monday and Tuesday. Any showers that do form should be short lived.

The next decent chance for rain will be Tuesday night or early Wednesday as a cold front moves through. Due to the timing of this front, heavy precipitation and thunderstorms are not expected at this time.
