While Thursday will not be rainy, it will remain cloudy and cool across the Finger Lakes.

Low pressure will track from the Ohio Valley across the Mid-Atlantic today. This path should keep the rain out of the Finger Lakes, except perhaps a stray shower or some drizzle across the far eastern stretches of the region.

However, it will remain cloudy today with temperatures some ten degrees below normal. Expect highs generally in the mid 50s.

The area of low pressure will exit off the east coast tonight, but will curve back to the north-northwest and stall out off the coast of New Jersey. As it does so, it will throw moisture back at the Finger Lakes. Showers will gradually become more likely through the day Friday, with the best chance of rain over the eastern Finger Lakes during the afternoon.

High temperatures on Friday will again only be in the mid 50s, though some parts of the western Finger Lakes could make a run at 60 degrees.

Showers will continue overnight Friday, spreading west across the remainder of the region. One or two lingering showers may be around early Saturday, but Saturday is generally looking decent.

Temperatures will return to near, or even just above normal levels with highs in the mid to upper 60s. The sun will again be hard to come by though, and a few showers may enter the picture late in the evening. Rain will overspread the area once more Saturday night, but should pull out by sunrise Sunday.

Mother’s Day is looking cold and blustery, with highs again stuck in the 50s. Some breaks of sun will be possible, but a gusty northwest wind will undo any good the sun does.

Early next week does look warm, but then temperatures should settle back near or below normal for the remainder of next week.
