A cold front will cross the area early Monday morning with some rain showers, but the sun will be out this afternoon.

Most of the rain is already over for the Finger Lakes, but a few more lingering showers will cross the area this morning. Temperatures are still mostly in the upper 40s and low 50s as of 7am, but will drop through the 40s as the cold front moves through.

The drop in temperatures will be counteracted by ample sunshine this afternoon, and most areas should remain in the upper 30s or low 40s this afternoon.

Clouds will move back in later this evening as a weak, moisture starved system swings into the Finger Lakes from the northwest. This system will only bring a few light snow showers, with no more than a coating of snow expected.

I have ideas for BIG improvements to FLXweather.com, including a mobile friendly website and more detailed forecasts. Can you help me plan these improvements by taking a brief survey?

Tuesday will be quiet across the Finger Lakes. Temperatures will vary by location, with low and mid 30s across the northern and central Finger Lakes, but 40s possible across the Southern Tier.

Warmer air will start to move in Tuesday evening ahead of the next storm system. A little mixes precipitation may briefly fall towards midnight Tuesday, but that will quickly turn to rain for most of the area. The question then becomes where the exact storm track will be, and how quickly the rain changes to snow.

The best chances for accumulating snow will be near and west of Rochester, but several inches may still be possible across the entire area Wednesday morning. Continue to monitor the forecast, as this could make for a sloppy Wednesday morning commute.
