High pressure will keep the weather quiet across the Finger Lakes this weekend while temperatures remain a bit above normal.A cold front pushed through the Finger Lakes on Thursday with plenty of rain. The front is now well to the southeast and high pressure is building in from the Midwest.

Lingering clouds from the front should dissipate this morning, leaving sunny skies for most of the area Friday. Some of the southern regions may hold onto the clouds a bit longer though.

Temperatures this morning are mostly in the upper 30s and will rise into the mid and upper 40s by this afternoon. While this is cooler than it has been in some time, it is still a bit above the normal daytime highs for this point in the year.

Clear skies overnight will let the temperatures drop back to around 30 degrees. Those same clear skies will then help temperatures warm quickly Saturday morning. Clouds will gradually increase on Saturday, but not before temperatures rise to near 60 degrees or warmer.

Clouds will become thick later Saturday into Sunday. Temperatures will thus be cooler on Sunday, with highs in the 50s.

Next week looks unsettled, with chances for rain most day. Temperatures will remain above normal, but mostly in the upper 40s and 50s.

Don’t forget- Daylight Saving’s Time begins Saturday night. Turn the clocks ahead an hour and check your smoke detector batteries!
