Rain will move through the Finger Lakes Monday morning.

This area of rain will make quick progress across the area, with a couple of hours of steady rain. The precipitation will then push off to the northeast, leaving the area dry for the afternoon.

Temperatures on Monday will change very little throughout the day. High temperatures will mostly be in the upper 40s, which is where most areas are starting the day as well.

Overnight, temperatures will drop back into the upper 30s under mostly cloudy skies. A few breaks of sun will be possible on Tuesday, which could help push temperatures into the mid or even upper 50s. There is just a slim chance for a shower in the far southeastern areas of the region.

Wednesday and Thursday will both turn out cloudy as low pressure tracks from the Canada, south into the Great Lakes, into the Mid Atlantic and then stalls off of the coast of New Jersey. A few scattered showers will also be possible on both days, but it does not look like we will see another soaking rain.

Temperatures will top out in the low 50s on Wednesday, with mid 50s on Thursday.

At this point in time, Friday looks a bit sunnier with highs making a run for the low 60s. Saturday looks even warmer, with 70 degrees a possibility. The forecast remains uncertain at this time though, and some rain may be possible which could keep temperatures cooler.
