It will be a glorious day in the Finger Lakes on Tuesday. High pressure is firmly in control of the weather.

Clear skies overnight let the temperature drop well back into the 40s for most areas. The sunny skies this morning will help to quickly burn off that chill. Temperatures will rise to around 70 degrees this afternoon. Sunny skies are expected throughout the day.

Southerly winds, and a few clouds after midnight, will help keep temperatures a bit warmer tonight. Low temperatures will mostly be around 50º. Temperatures will again shoot upward quickly in the morning, with 70s by midday. High temperatures on Wednesday should be near or just shy of 80º for much of the Finger Lakes.

A few rain showers may enter into the western counties Wednesday night, before spreading east during the day on Thursday. Many areas will probably see little to no rain, as showers will be scattered and generally light. Temperatures on Thursday will vary depending on cloud cover and rain showers. Areas that see some sun could push 80 degrees again, while those stuck under clouds and rain may struggle to 70 degrees.

Mid and upper 70s are likely on Friday with just a couple of left over showers, mostly in the morning. A very nice weekend should set up as well, with highs mostly in the 70s on Saturday and 80s on Sunday. Skies should be sun filled with no precipitation expected.

Temperatures will continue to rise early next week. Some places may see 90 degrees again before a cold front comes through later Tuesday or early Wednesday.

    Over the last 90 days, most of the Finger Lakes has only gotten 50-75% of their normal rain…so things are definitely dry. No beneficial rain is in the near term forecast though.

    Can you bring us some rain? How far behind are we for moisture this season?
