The current storm track across the eastern United States is taking systems from the Midwest and Plains towards the Mid-Atlantic, keeping the northeast dry.

One of these systems will pass to our south tonight and early Friday. A few flurries may sneak into the Finger Lakes, but accumulations will be an inch or less.

This system will be kept at bay by high pressure over eastern Canada. This high pressure will keep winds out of the north today, resulting in below normal temperatures. Most places will see highs in the upper 20s today. Cloud cover tonight should help keep temperatures in the low 20s and upper teens.

The cooling effect of the high pressure system will lessen over the coming days, with highs in the mid 30s expected both Friday and Saturday and near-normal highs around 40 degrees by Sunday.

Much of these three days will be cloudy, but some sun will be possible later Friday and early Sunday. A few more flurries may clip the area Saturday night as another system dives to our south.

Temperatures will start to warm up next week, however. High temperatures on Monday may push towards 50 degrees, while 60s are a decent possibility Tuesday and Wednesday. A storm system will bring some rain towards the middle of next week for our next real shot at substantial precipitation.
