Evening Audio Weather Update- Wednesday, May 24, 2017 Transcript
Good afternoon! This is Finger Lakes Weather meteorologist Drew Montreuil with your evening forecast update for Wednesday, May 24, 2017.
Outside of a few showers currently in southwest New York, the area is dry as of 5:30 pm and should remain dry into the evening hours. Temperatures are warm in the 70s and will gradually fall through the 60s this evening.
Rain showers will move into the Finger Lakes after midnight tonight, but the heaviest, steadiest rain now looks like it may not enter from the south until around 6 am on Thursday.
Once the rain does move in, expect a solid 6 to 8 hours of steady rain throughout the morning. Some of the rain during the late morning could have some embedded heavy downpours or even a rumble of thunder.
The rain should taper off by the afternoon, but it will remain breezy and cool with highs struggling to reach 60 degrees.
