The southern half of the Finger Lakes will have to contend with a few light rain showers Tuesday.

For the northern half of the region though, rain will be hard to come by as dry air holds tight.

Even for the more southern areas, today will not be a washout by any means. The radar looks full, but a lot of what is showing is not reaching the ground.

An occasional light shower will wet the pavement at times, but heavy or prolonged rain is unlikely today.

The clouds and spotty showers will keep temperatures a touch cooler, with highs generally in the mid and upper 50s. The warmest temperatures will be along and north of I-90.

Rain will sink south later today, and some clearing skies will be possible tonight into early Wednesday. Some cooler air behind today’s system will counteract the extra sunshine for high temperatures that are similar to today.

The cloud cover Wednesday night is a bit uncertain. For most of the region, this is insignificant, with lows mostly in the upper 30s to low 40s. However, for some of the coldest, outlying areas, clear skies could send temperatures low enough for a little patchy frost.

Temperatures should return to the 60s for Thursday, with upper 60s on Friday. Both days should be dry, with more sun on Thursday.

Saturday’s weather is uncertain. At this time, it looks dry, but a large storm system will be lurking just to the south. A slight jog to the north would bring some rain showers and cooler temperatures into the area. Sunday looks dry and mild, with highs around 70 degrees.

Warmer weather should move in for next week, possibly including some 80s.
