Quiet and a Bit Warmer
The sun is out this morning across the Finger Lakes this Wednesday with many areas getting off to a frosty start. However, temperatures are beginning to quickly warm under the bright sun.
While temperatures will not climb too high today, they should get well into the 50s.
Some cloud cover over the Great Lakes may swing in for a time later today, resulting in partly to mostly cloudy skies for a time. No precipitation is expected, however.
Mixed skies will continue overnight, with primarily high, thin clouds in an otherwise clear sky. Overnight temperatures will drop back into the mid 30s with some patchy frost possible.
A mix of sun and clouds will again be likely on Thursday with no precipitation expected. Temperatures will finally return to the 60s for most areas, with low 60s expected for highs.
Clouds will begin to thicken up later Friday as the next storm system approaches. A few rain showers may move in from the southwest by Friday evening. Temperatures Friday will be held back a bit by the extra clouds, with highs mostly in the upper 50s, though areas north of I-90 may sneak into the low 60s again.
Cold and Rainy Mother’s Day Weekend
Unfortunately, the tolerable weather will not continue into the Mother’s Day weekend.
A pair of storm systems will impact the Finger Lakes, with the first passing south on Saturday and the second moving through from the northwest on Sunday.
A period of steady rain seems likely early on Saturday, followed by afternoon showers. After an evening lull in the rain, more rain showers will be likely on Sunday.
Winds will pick up on Sunday as well, gusting over 30 mph throughout the day.
Temperatures will also get set back, with highs Saturday likely falling just short of 50 degrees and barely climbing above 50 on Sunday.
After the weekend, an extended period of dry, warm weather seems possible next week.
