Some clouds, and maybe an isolated shower, will develop Thursday.

A weak area of low pressure situated just north of New York will spread some clouds into the Finger Lakes later Thursday morning after starting the day with clear, sunny skies.

This should result in a mix of sun and clouds throughout most of the day. The vast majority of the region will remain dry, but one or two light, isolated showers could pop up.

Temperatures will mostly be in the low to mid 60s this afternoon. Skies will clear quickly this evening, and temperatures will drop back into the low and mid 40s. A few of the normally colder areas could see the upper 30s.

Friday will similarly start out sunny, but cloud will thicken as the day goes on. High temperatures will push into the upper 60s, with a few places hitting 70 degrees.

Unlike Thursday, there should be no rain from these clouds. Also unlike Thursday, the clouds will not dissipate during the evening.

These clouds will be associated with a stronger storm system that will move up the east coast on Saturday. While high pressure will keep steady rain well to the south, a few afternoon showers will pop up Saturday afternoon, especially for areas south of Route 20.

Temperatures on Saturday will again reach the upper 60s to near 70 degrees. Sunday, too, will have similar temperatures, with clouds, a little sun, and some showers for eastern areas in the afternoon.

After one more day near 70 on Monday, temperatures will get a boost with mid 70s Tuesday and near 80 degrees Wednesday and Thursday. Next week should remain dry until scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms start to pop up Thursday and Friday.
