Pleasant day in the Finger Lakes after some morning fog

finger lakes weather forecast fog sun temperatures
Areas of fog will burn off this morning leaving sunny skies and comfortable temperatures.

Parts of the Finger Lakes are foggy Wednesday morning, but the sun will take over for a nice day.

A Nice Day Wednesday, Not Bad Thursday

Areas of for this morning are the result of the rain showers last night and cooler temperatures behind the front that passed through on Tuesday. Some of the fog is locally dense, so use due caution while on the roads this morning.

The fog should not last too long as dry air infiltrates the region and the sun rises higher in the sky. Once the fog does burn off, look for mostly sunny skies today.

Dew points will be in the 40s and 50s, which will be very comfortable this afternoon. Daytime highs will be near normal, topping out in the mid 70s. Areas along the shore of Lake Ontario may be a bit cooler.

Winds will generally be fairly light, making for an overall great day in the Finger Lakes.

Temperatures will slide back into the 50s this evening, but winds will swing around to the south, keeping temperatures in the mid 50s overnight.

Some warmer air will move in as a result of the south wind, with highs Thursday mostly in the 80s.

Western portions of the Finger Lakes may see a couple showers in the afternoon, but most of the Finger Lakes will remain dry and partly cloudy on Thursday.

Unsettled Pattern

A front will move through the Finger Lakes on Friday with periods of showers, especially early in the day. A couple of thunderstorms may also be possible.

With the clouds and showers, temperatures Friday will mostly be in the 70s. A few 80s may show up in the far northwestern reaches of the Finger Lakes.

Heat and humidity return for the weekend, though not quite to the extent of earlier in the week. Still, mid and upper 80s are likely Saturday and Sunday.

A few stray showers or storms may fire Saturday afternoon. The thunderstorm threat could become greater late Sunday afternoon and evening depending on how storms evolve further west as a strong front approaches.

Currently, most of the action from this front will be overnight Sunday, leading to cooler temperatures next week with continued chances for scattered rain showers.
