It will again be a cloudy, chilly day in the Finger Lakes on Monday, but nicer weather awaits.

Low pressure will remain nearly stationary today just to the east of Maine. This is a strong storm system, and will continue to be the primary influence on our weather, even as high pressure settles into the Great Lakes.

North winds between the high and low pressure systems will again be breezy today, but not nearly as strong as they were on Sunday. Top wind gusts should be in the 20-25 mph range.

Clouds will remain locked in place for the majority of the day, with just a couple glimpses of the sun expected late in the afternoon. With the thick clouds and north winds, high temperatures will generally be in the mid and upper 60s.

High pressure will take over our weather tonight, with gradually clearing skies and chilly overnight lows. Expect temperatures in the 40s early Tuesday morning. Temperatures should warm quickly, however, thanks to bright, sunny skies. The sun should continue through the afternoon, with high temperatures mostly around 70 degrees.

Wednesday will be warmer, with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s. The day will start sunny, but some high, thin clouds will work in during the afternoon.

Numerous showers and thunderstorms may become possible for Thursday as a warm front pushes into the region. The details on when and where the rain will be most likely are not clear yet.
