A glaze of ice may accumulate over parts of the Finger Lakes, especially Saturday night.

Sloppy Weekend Forecast

A stalled out frontal boundary will wobble to and fro over the Finger Lakes, bringing a mix of light precipitation through the weekend.

To the north and west of this front, temperatures remain stuck around 30 degrees with spotty snow and freezing rain showers.

Further south and east, temperatures are in the mid and upper 30s and should push into the 40s by this afternoon with any precipitation falling as rain.

Precipitation should be quite limited through most of Saturday, but will likely increase somewhat late Saturday afternoon and evening as an area of low pressure travels along the front.

At the same time, cooler air will settle in as the front sags southeast. This should lead to some light icing potential across most of the Finger Lakes this evening into the overnight. Ice accumulations will generally just be a glaze.

For areas north of a line roughly from Buffalo to Canandaigua to Fulton should see mostly snow with an inch or two possibly accumulating.

On Sunday, temperatures should warm again with a few rain showers scattered about the region. High temperatures should reach the 40s for most areas.

Again, precipitation will generally be light and quite scattered.

Next Week Preview

High pressure will build in early next week, kicking the stalled front out of the region.

At least some sunshine is likely Monday into Tuesday before some more spotty, light precipitation becomes possible Wednesday into Thursday.

Temperatures will start the week near normal, with highs around or just above 30 degrees.

Milder air comes in for the middle of the week with highs at least in the 40s. The precipitation that falls will do so as rain.

Cooler air will filter in by Friday, with highs returning back to normal.
