Cool and dry for FLX to end the week

Low pressure moving from the Ohio River Valley into the Mid-Atlantic will spread some high, thin clouds into the FLX but no rain.

The Finger Lakes will enjoy some quiet, comfortable weather to end the work week thanks to high pressure over the Great Lakes.

This high pressure system will also act to keep an area of low pressure over the Ohio River Valley at bay. This system, along with its widespread moderate rainfall, will track east towards the Mid Atlantic before heading off the coast.

The only impact we will see here in the Finger Lakes should be some high, thin clouds that will filter our sunshine on Thursday.

Combined with the cool Canadian high pressure system, and temperatures will only reach the low 70s both Thursday and Friday. Overnight lows will drop back into the 50s with some areas of fog developing in the normally foggy valleys.

The weather becomes more active, and less certain, starting this weekend and into early next week. It may turn out that the weekend is mostly dry, but there is still a chance for at least a few showers and possibly some steadier rain. The best chance for rain this weekend would be later Saturday afternoon into Sunday.

Continue to monitor the forecast for updates on this weekend’s weather.
