Finger Lakes Dries Out…Mostly…For a Day

finger lakes weather forecast when will it stop raining
For the most part, the Finger Lakes will remain dry on Wednesday, but more rain is on the way to end the week.

A Nicer Day Wednesday

The weather across the Finger Lakes will finally improve on Wednesday.

High pressure over the Mid-Atlantic will exert its influence on the Finger Lakes today. This should result in sunny skies and a bit milder temperatures.

There is not a 100% guarantee that the area will be completely rain free today. One or two more isolated showers or thunderstorms may pop up in the afternoon.

These should be few and far between, unlike the last few days. Most areas should remain dry today.

Temperatures will return to the low 70s this afternoon, which is closer to, but still below normal.

Winds will turn from the west to the south this evening and warmer air will start to move in. Temperatures overnight should be near 60 degrees as a result.

More Rain Incoming

The chances for rain will increase again over the Finger Lakes as early as Wednesday night as a warm front approaches the region.

The steadiest, heaviest rain associated with this front should stay north of Lake Ontario. Still, occasional showers are expected across the area through much of Thursday, especially for areas further north.

With the warm front to the north, temperatures should push well into the 80s on Thursday, especially if some sun comes out. Most areas should see low and mid 80s, with the warmest temperatures across the central Finger Lakes.

Thunderstorms may be possible Thursday evening and through Thursday night. A few storms with gusty winds may be possible.

More scattered showers and storms will be possible on Friday. Saturday, while still uncertain, has the potential to have widespread storms during the afternoon and evening hours.

Temperatures Friday and Saturday will push towards the mid 80s with high humidity.

Sunday is looking generally dry before another stretch of daily afternoon showers and storms begins on Monday.
