Finger Lakes heating up through Saturday

While it will not be quite as hot as early September, temperatures will still run 10 to 15 degrees above normal for the remainder of the week.
While it will not be quite as hot as early September, temperatures will still run 10 to 15 degrees above normal for the remainder of the week.

High pressure centered south of the Finger Lakes has a firm grip on the weather east of the Mississippi River.

This will result in continued dry, warm weather for the Finger Lakes, with each of the next few days a couple of degrees warmer than the previous day.

Temperatures today, Wednesday, should top out near 80 degrees. Low 80s will be likely both Thursday and Friday, with a few mid 80s showing up on Saturday. Morning lows will still be cool- mostly in the 50s- with some areas of fog in the typical locations.

No precipitation is expected until late in the day on Saturday. Then, a cold front will approach and bring some showers to the area. The exact timing will be worked out over the coming days, but it looks as if most of the shower activity will be after dark Saturday.

Behind this front, temperatures will be much cooler. Highs on Sunday will only reach the mid 60s.
