Showers slowly taper off across Finger Lakes early this week

finger lakes weather five day forecast june 19 2017
With the exception of Wednesday, most of this week will at least have a chance for showers and near normal temperatures.

Showery Start to the Week

The cold front that spawned Sunday’s severe weather in the Finger Lakes is slowly working east today.

Numerous showers are scattered about the region Monday morning. Gradually these showers will become more scattered this afternoon, but the chances for rain will persist into the evening hours.

A few rumbles of thunder may accompany a few of the showers this afternoon, especially across the eastern Finger Lakes. No additional severe weather is expected, though.

After a lull in the activity Tuesday morning, additional isolated showers are expected on Tuesday. Many areas will see little to no rain on Tuesday, but a couple isolated heavier downpours are possible. Again, the best chance for this seems to be over the eastern Finger Lakes.

Temperatures both Monday and Tuesday will top out in the mid 70s. Some slightly cooler air will work in with a narrow wedge of high pressure on Wednesday, which should keep the area dry.

And a Stormy End to the Week

The break in the weather Wednesday will be short lived as a new storm system tracks across southern Canada for the end of the work week.

A front will approach the region from the west on Thursday, bringing an increasing chance for rain later in the day. This looks like a widespread, mostly light rain for the afternoon and evening hours.

The front will stall out for a time just north of the region, then sink back south on Friday. Tropical air ahead of the front will aid in the development of thunderstorms with some possibly heavy rain. The flash flooding potential will be something to watch, though it is too early to be certain there will be much actual risk.

Temperatures will remain close to normal late in the week, with mid and upper 70s possible. Temperatures Thursday could end up cooler if the rain moves in sooner, and Friday’s temperatures may depend on the timing of the rain and thunderstorms.
