Sunshine will gradually increase on Wednesday as high pressure moves into the Finger Lakes.

First, however, a disturbance trailing behind an area of low pressure will move through the area.

Mostly cloudy skies will persist this morning. A brief shower or two will be possible as well, especially north of I-90. Most areas will not see rain, and those that do will be hard pressed to even completely wet the pavement.

The threat for rain showers will diminish by the early afternoon. The sun should start to become more visible as the afternoon wears on, with mostly clear skies developing by this evening.

High temperatures today will be cooler than in recent days. Expect top temperatures this afternoon mostly in the low 70s.

Clear skies underneath high pressure will allow for temperatures to drop into the low 50s tonight for many areas. Sunny skies Thursday morning will quickly warm the air, with highs in the afternoon within a few degrees on either side of 80 degrees. It should be sunny throughout the day.

The next chance for a few showers will come on Friday as another front works through. Like yesterday, the best chance for rain may end up just east of the Finger Lakes. Still, at least a few showers should sprinkle parts of the Finger Lakes. Temperatures will range from the 70s in the west, where the front passes early, to the low 80s further east where some daytime heating will occur ahead of the front.

Saturday and Sunday are both looking quite nice, with temperatures mostly in the 70s and a good deal of sun. A big warm up may be in store for next week though, with plenty of 80s and some 90s in the forecast. What continues to be lacking from the forecast, however, is rain, with much of the next 10 days looking dry.
