A fairly average first full week of October will unfold for the Finger Lakes.
A fairly average first full week of October will unfold for the Finger Lakes.

The weather this week in the Finger Lakes will be close to seasonal norms in most aspects.There will not be ‘too much’ of anything this week, with temperatures neither hot nor cold, and a bit of rain to go with some otherwise tranquil weather.

An easterly flow between high pressure to our north and the low pressure bringing catastrophic flooding to the Carolinas will keep clouds in the picture, especially Monday and Tuesday. Still, some sun should break out from time to time, and no precipitation is expected from these clouds.

A subtle disturbance could bring in a stray shower or two on Wednesday, with a better chance for some rain on Friday. Otherwise, the week should remain dry.

Temperatures during the day time will be right on average, with high temperatures in the low to maybe mid 60s each day this week. Overnight lows will be a bit warmer than average, with upper 40s and 50s most nights. Typical overnight lows for early October are in the low and mid 40s.

Looking beyond this week, the weather may get more active towards the middle of the month. While a brief warm up will be possible, the pattern predominately looks cold in the coming weeks.
