Clouds will increase on Monday ahead of a front set to move through early Tuesday.

However, despite the extra cloud cover, Monday will still be a very mild day. Temperatures should once again breach 70 degrees for most of the Finger Lakes. Temperatures will warm quickly this morning as the clouds gradually increase. No precipitation will fall during the day, however.

Most of Monday night should be dry as well, even as the clouds remain in place. Temperatures will drop into the low 40s by dawn Tuesday morning. At that time, a few showers may start to drift into the Finger Lakes from the north.

Generally speaking, the front will be starved for moisture and the shower activity associated with it will be limited. Still, scattered showers will be possible Tuesday morning, even if not every location gets rain. Skies will clear during the late morning and should remain sunny during the afternoon and throughout Wednesday.

Temperatures will be cooler behind the cold front, but not too far from normal for mid-April. Tuesday’s highs will mostly be in the mid 50s, while Wednesday will see temperatures within a couple degrees on either side of 60.

Temperatures will make another run at 70 degrees on Thursday as warmer air moves north ahead of the next weather system. This system will bring clouds in for the later part of Thursday with some rain showers likely on Friday.

At this point, the weekend looks mostly dry, but cooler, with highs in the lower half of the 50s.
