A strong front is stalled out just south of the Great Lakes, separating cooler air to its north and some very mild air to its south.This is the same front that was to our north on Monday, bringing us sunshine and warm temperatures. Yesterday, the front settled back to our south, putting us on the cold side of this system. That is where we remain today, though warm air is trying to move back north. Unfortunately, it will not have much luck, with highs mostly in the 40s today and nearing 50º on Thursday.
The best chance for warmer temperatures will be across western New York, roughly along I-90 from Buffalo south.
There are a few disturbances traveling along this front. As each disturbance passes by, a batch of showers and maybe even some thunder will move through. One such batch is pushing through early Wednesday. Another is expected late this afternoon into tonight, with a third likely later on Thursday.
In between the areas of rain, some sun may come out at times.
Warm air will briefly return on Friday as a stronger area of low pressure develops along the front and moves into eastern Canada. This system will help push temperatures into the 60s on Friday, especially for the eastern Finger Lakes. A cold front will sweep through in the afternoon though, sending temperatures back towards normal readings on Saturday.
To end this on a high note, the weekend looks sunny and dry, with highs returning to the 60s on Sunday.
