A much more comfortable, but still warm, day is in store for the Finger Lakes after Sunday’s heat and before Tuesday’s showers and storms.
The Finger Lakes resides between two cold fronts on Monday. The first front moved through overnight after bringing a couple of showers and thunderstorms to the area on Sunday. Most of the severe weather yesterday was contained to Pennsylvania and eastern New York.
Temperatures behind the front are still warm, but not nearly as hot or humid as Sunday. High temperatures today will be in the low 80s for most areas, but with dewpoints in the 50s and 60s, making it feel much more comfortable. Morning sun should give way to some fair weather clouds this afternoon, but no precipitation is expected.
Our next chance for rain may be our only chance during the upcoming work week. Another cold front will slide through the region on Tuesday with some showers and thunderstorms. Severe weather is not expected with this front. High pressure will build in and take control of our region behind this front, bringing dry weather and average temperatures for the rest of the week.
