The weather this weekend will be quiet across the Finger Lakes with near normal temperatures.

Cloudy Saturday

The weekend is off to a cloudy start thanks to a stalled out frontal boundary across the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic.

The clouds will remain in place for much of the day today, but no precipitation is expected from them.

Temperatures are starting the day in the upper teens and low 20s, and will rise to an afternoon high just above 30 degrees for most areas.

Winds will be nearly calm throughout the day.

Sunnier Sunday

Sunday will turn out to be very similar to Saturday, with winds and temperatures nearly identical.

The one major difference will be the cloud cover.

High pressure will push in from the northwest, removing most of the cloud cover from the area. A few fair weather clouds will remain likely throughout the day.

Temperatures may fall a degree or two shy of Saturday’s high temperatures as some cool air sneaks in ahead of the high pressure system. The difference will not be noticeable.

Another Warm Week

Winter is officially on vacation from the Finger Lakes, with another week of above normal temperatures, and a complete lack of snow awaits.

While excessive warmth does not look overly likely, most days will probably see high temperatures in the 40s next week.

The weather will be fairly tranquil, unlike last week. A storm system will bring some rain in on Tuesday with a few showers lingering into Wednesday, but otherwise the week looks dry.

This storm system will not be as strong as last week’s systems, so the wind should not be nearly as strong either.

The next hints of even a trend towards more wintry weather do not start to show up until the middle of the next week, around January 25th.
