November is starting out tranquil, with generally quiet conditions and near normal temperatures.

Inactive Weather Pattern

With the exception of Thursday morning’s rain, the Finger Lakes has settled into a rather quiet weather pattern. This tranquil weather should carry through the weekend and next week.

In this weather regime, temperatures will mostly be within a reasonable distance of normal. The normal high temperature for this time of the year is near or just above 50 degrees. Slightly above normal temperatures will be more common than below normal temperatures.

High pressure will generally be in control of the weather, meaning the chances for precipitation will be few and far between. In fact, over the coming week, precipitation amounts will likely be a quarter-inch or less.

The best chance for rain in the upcoming seven days will be towards Tuesday next week, when a small cold front slides through.

Weekend Weather

For the next few days, temperatures will bounce around a little.

On the back side of Thursday’s storm system, temperatures on Friday will be on the cool side. Even though temperatures are starting the day in the low 40s, afternoon highs are only expected to reach the mid or maybe upper 40s.

The sun should eventually work its way out today, but it may take most of the afternoon for some parts of the eastern Finger Lakes.

Periods of sun and clouds will persist into Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will be warmest on Saturday, with highs in the mid 50s. Sunday will be a bit cooler, with highs in the low 50s.

Daylight Savings Time ends Saturday night, so be sure to set your clocks *back* an hour before going to bed Saturday evening.
