Cool temperatures, low humidity and morning fog will make it actually feel like late summer in the Finger Lakes for a change.

Cool Behind Front

The cold front that moved through the Finger Lakes on Sunday brought more than just some needed rain with it.

Cooler temperatures have set up over the Finger Lakes in one of the most significant reprieves from the seemingly endless supply of heat and humidity.

Temperatures on Monday will top out around 70 degrees. While the normally warmer areas will probably get to and above 70, many of the cooler locations will likely remain in the upper 60s. We have had numerous overnight lows that have been warmer than this over the past few weeks.

Speaking of overnight lows, it will be a chilly night. Temperatures Tuesday morning will drop well into the low and mid 50s. A few of the coldest outlying valleys could even end up in the 40s. Watch out for some areas of dense fog during the early morning hours.

All the while, skies will be mostly clear. The wind Monday may be a bit blustery, with gusts of 20-30 mph.

Warming Back Up

The cool weather will not stick around. Winds will turn to the southwest by Tuesday afternoon as high pressure passes to the south. With more sun filled skies, temperatures will jump all the way to the upper 70s. A few areas, such as around Rochester, should manage 80 degrees.

The warming trend will continue into Wednesday. Morning lows Wednesday will generally be in the upper 50s, while afternoon highs push into the low and mid 80s. It will remain sunny and dry.

Thursday could be as warm as Wednesday, but some afternoon showers and storms will be possible which could keep temperatures down slightly. Temperatures look to remain in the low 80s right into the weekend.

Coming Tuesday…

The Atlantic Hurricane Season typically ramps up in Late August and peaks in mid-September. Right on schedule, the tropical activity is starting to ramp up. Check back Tuesday morning for a detailed look at what is going on in the Tropics.
