Cool weather settles into the Finger Lakes to start June

finger lakes weather forecast below normal temperatures
Temperatures will be well below normal by June standards for at least the first week of the new month.

The next few days will be quiet and cool across the Finger Lakes. Below normal temperatures will persist at least into next week.

June Starts a Bit Chilly

June marks the start of meteorological summer, but for the Finger Lakes, it will continue to feel more like spring with well below normal temperatures.

At least it will stop raining for a couple of days.

A cool area of high pressure will build towards the region over the next couple of days, passing nearly overhead by Saturday. The result will be a decent amount of sunshine, but temperatures that are 10-15 degrees below normal.

Typically, early June has afternoon highs in the mid 70s. Instead, the temperature will top out in the mid 60s Thursday and Saturday, with just low 60s on Friday.

In fact, 60s are a constant presence in the forecast until next Wednesday, when highs may just reach 70 degrees.

Below normal temperatures are possible into the middle of the month before some warmer weather will be possible.

Rain Chances Increase Later in the Weekend

Through Saturday, there will likely be a few scattered showers about the Finger Lakes. However, these will be light and scattered enough that most places will be dry for the vast majority of the three day period.

A stray, isolated shower will be possible today. There is a chance that no showers develop at all, but even if some do, they will be very insignificant.

Friday will probably have a few more showers to contend with, but also a fair amount of sunshine and plenty of dry time. Even if a couple showers manage to move over the same location, rain amounts will be well under a tenth of an inch.

Saturday should be completely dry with high pressure moving overhead.

A new storm system will move in on Sunday, however. Widespread, possibly heavy rain in the morning will transition to scattered tunderstorms in the afternoon. This system will hang around for a few days, with more showers Monday and Tuesday.

Rain totals by Wednesday morning should easily be over an inch for the majority of the reigon with a few places possibly approaching three inches.
