Cool Air Settles In
Temperatures are back in the 20s across the Finger Lakes following the passage of a cold front on Tuesday.
Snow showers early this morning will gradually taper off during the first couple hours after sunrise. Generally, a coating of accumulation is all that should be expected.
Flurries will linger a bit longer over the higher elevations of the eastern Finger Lakes and may not end until noon or the early afternoon. Some of these places could see a couple of inches of accumulation.
Skies will remain mostly cloudy through the afternoon and into the overnight.
Temperatures will not rise much today, with highs mostly in the mid 20s. Temperatures will slip back into the upper teens tonight.
Clouds should begin to break up around dawn on Thursday as high pressure moves overhead. Morning lows will be in the mid and upper teens.
Thursday will remain sunny and highs will again reach the mid 20s.
Temperatures Warm Again
As high pressure starts to move east, temperatures will begin another warming trend.
South winds will begin to develop Thursday night, keeping temperatures mostly in the 20s or upper teens for Friday morning.
Skies should remain sunny throughout the day with just some high, thin cirrus clouds.
Highs Friday afternoon will range from the low and mid 40s across the eastern Finger Lakes to the upper 40s further west. A few places in and around Rochester could even hit 50 degrees.
Saturday will settle in the 40s as clouds increase and rain showers arrive late in the day.
Roller Coaster Pattern Persists
Looking further out, it appears that this up and down pattern will continue.
Temperatures will not stay above or below normal for more than a couple of days as weather systems swing through the area.
The question with these systems then becomes whether any will tap into enough cold air to produce significant snow on the backside of the system.
Rain showers should turn to snow Sunday afternoon, but at this time, accumulations look light.
There will be additional storm systems to watch in the coming weeks, along with plenty of rises and falls in the temperatures.
