Quiet weather returns to the Finger Lakes until the weekend

Some sun will gradually work out Wednesday with sunny skies Thursday and Friday.

Clouds will take a while to burn off today, but more sun is expected Thursday and Friday across the Finger Lakes.

Quiet For a Few Days

A cold front moved through last night and resides over eastern New York this morning. Cool air is slowly filtering into the Finger Lakes.

Most areas are starting the day around 50 degrees, but will likely slip back into the upper 40s this morning before rising back into the low 50s.

Clouds from the front remain in place over the region, and a couple of showers may even be possible early this morning east of Cayuga Lake. The best chance for these showers will be before 9 am.

Cloud cover may be tough to erode away, but eventually, some sun should start to make an appearance during the afternoon hours. Should the sun come out quicker, temperatures could end up warmer.

By tonight, skies should clear and temperatures will fall back into the 30s overnight.

Thursday and Friday both promise to be quite sunny. Some high thin clouds will work in Friday, but they should not diminish the sun much.

Temperatures will be in the low 50s on Thursday but should warm into the low 60s on Friday.

Active Easter Weekend

A storm system will lift from the Plains into the Great Lakes and then Canada this weekend.

As this system evolves, there will be a couple of chances for precipitation in the Finger Lakes.

A warm front will be pushed through the Finger Lakes during the day Saturday. Several hours of rain will likely accompany this frontal passage.

The timing of the rain is still a bit uncertain, but the middle of the day or afternoon hours seem most likely.

Once the front passes, temperatures will shoot up. The speed at which the front moves through will determine how warm it gets Saturday, but Easter Sunday should see temperatures well into the 70s.

A cold front later in the day Sunday will bring some showers and a couple of thunderstorms during the afternoon.
