The weather across the Finger Lakes will continue to be sunny and warm throughout the coming week.

Little to No Rain This Week

After a weekend full of sun and summery temperatures, this week will follow up with more of the same.

For those that could use some rain though, this is not necessarily welcome news.

The Finger Lakes will see very little to no rain this week as high pressure remains in place.

The only chances for rain, slim as they may be, will be Monday afternoon and on Tuesday out ahead of a moisture starved, weak cold front.

One or two showers may pop up in the afternoon heat today, with an additional isolated shower on Tuesday. For most areas though, there will be no rain.

Hurricane Jose is slowly moving northward off the East Coast, but will not be anywhere close enough to the Finger Lakes for rain. Some eastern portions of the Finger Lakes will see some high, thin clouds on the fringe of Jose, but the central and western Finger Lakes may not even see that.

Above Normal Temperatures

Today will be the warmest day of the week as temperatures push into the 80s once again. A few places will likely reach the mid 80s, with low 80s for the remainder of the region.

As weak as the cold front Tuesday will be, it will reduce temperatures a few degrees over the region.

Look for highs on Tuesday to be around 80 degrees, with highs generally in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

This is still well above normal for mid-September. The average high during this time of the year is closer to or just above 70 degrees.

Morning lows will mostly be in the upper 50s and low 60s with some areas of morning fog.

Fall Photos Needed

Autumn is quickly approaching and is one of the most scenic times of the year in the Finger Lakes.

I would love to use your fall pictures in my daily posts. I am in need of photos from all stages of fall, from leaves just starting to turn, to fully ablaze in color, to after most of the leaves have dropped. All weather types, from sun to rain and even snow are also needed.

You can submit photos for consideration in whatever manner is easiest for you — email, social media, google drive or even texting. If you have photos or videos you would like to share, please do not hesitate to send them along.

For more information, head over to the Submit a Weather Photo page. Please share with your family and friends!
