Flurries will bring a coating of snow to the Finger Lakes on Saturday, but much warmer weather is only a couple days away.

A disturbance will cut from the Great Lakes to the Mid Atlantic today. Flurries out ahead of this system will work into the Finger Lakes today. Some of what is showing on the radar image above probably isn’t reaching the ground, but at least a few flakes should fly today.

Snow accumulations will be less than an inch, with most areas getting no more than a light coating of fluffy snow. Temperatures will rise into the low 30s today, with overnight lows around 20 degrees.

By Sunday morning, snow and clouds from this system should be out of the region with sunny skies and quickly warming temperatures. Some spotty clouds will develop during the afternoon, but all in all it will be a pleasant day with highs near 40 degrees.

On Monday, the temperatures will start to really warm up, with highs in the mid 50s. Low and mid 60s are likely on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

While Monday and Tuesday should remain mostly dry, a few showers will start to move in for Wednesday. Thursday looks rainy as a cold front pushes through. Temperatures behind this front will be in the 40s Thursday and Friday, but more very warm weather is possible next weekend.
