The end of the week will continue the trend of quiet weather, but temperatures will start to warm on Sunday.

A pair of storm systems- one diving southeast from the Great Lakes and another off the coast of the Carolinas- will bring rain and snow to the Mid-Atlantic, but nothing more than a few flurries to the southeastern Finger Lakes this morning.

These two systems will consolidate into a powerful storm, but by that time, the system will be off the coast with no impacts over land. Clouds from these system will remain with us into the afternoon, but the day should end on a sunny note.

Temperatures will be a few degrees below normal, with highs mostly in the mid 30s. Temperatures will drop back into the 20s quickly this evening with clear skies and calm winds, but clouds will rethicken towards midnight and slow the drop in temperature.

Saturday will be rather cloudy as another system passes to our south. A few stray flurries will be possible, especially across the Southern Tier. No more than a coating of new snow is expected. Temperatures will be a bit cooler than Friday, with highs in the low 30s.

Warmer weather will start to move in on Sunday. With a bit more in the way of sun, temperatures should push towards 40 degrees. Much warmer weather is still expected next week, with highs into the 50s on Monday and low 60s on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Clouds and showers will be around as early as Tuesday, but especially on Wednesday and Thursday, which should prevent the temperatures from getting too extreme. Above normal temperatures should persist at least into next weekend.
