Wedge of Dry Air Brings Some Sun to the FLX
A strong storm system over the northern Great Lakes brought strong winds and some rain to the region overnight and into early Tuesday morning.
The eastern Finger Lakes, mainly east of Cayuga Lake, is still dealing with some steady and even heavy rain at times this morning. More scattered showers extend west back towards the central Finger Lakes.
Further west, dry air has already entered the region with no precipitation falling roughly west of Canandaigua currently this morning.
This dry air is wrapping into the storm system from the southwest and will continue to push into the Finger Lakes today, resulting in a fairly tranquil day.The rain across the eastern Finger Lakes should end by the late morning with a mix of sun and clouds overspreading the region.
Temperatures will push into the mid 60s for most of the area, with a few upper 60s near Rochester and Syracuse while the southwestern Finger Lakes remains in the low 60s.
Winds are not nearly as strong behind the rain as they were last night, but it will remain breezy today. Top wind gusts will likely be in the 30-35 mph range before they lessen significantly tonight.
Storm System Pulls Away
After not moving very much today, this storm system will begin to weaken and pull away slowly tonight into Wednesday and Thursday.
A couple of reinforcing shots of cold air will rotate around the low and through the Finger Lakes, possibly touching off a couple more showers.
One of these fronts will pass through this evening, but shower activity should remain very limited and will mostly be near or after midnight.
A few more showers will be possible later Wednesday into Thursday, but again, these should be light and scattered.
Outside of any spits of rain, skies will be a mix of clouds and some breaks of sun.
Cool air will move in from the southwest as these fronts pass through.
Temperatures on Wednesday will top out mostly between 55-60 degrees while highs Thursday will mostly be in the low 50s.
By Friday morning, temperatures across most of the Finger Lakes will fall into the 30s.
