More of the Same
Unfortunately, there will be no improvement in the weather conditions across the Finger Lakes this weekend as temperatures remain well below normal, snow flurries continue, and gusty winds blow.
Some scattered lake effect snow is about the region Saturday morning and will likely remain throughout the weekend.
The majority of this snow will be light and insignificant. A coating of snow may accumulate at times, but breaks of sunshine will help limit the accumulation.
Temperatures Saturday will only top out in the mid 30s. Winds will gust to 30 mph at times, keeping the wind chill in the 20s.
A disturbance will pass by overnight, enhancing the lake effect snow a bit for Sunday morning. A few heavier squalls may be possible with localized amounts of an inch or so falling.
Squalls should taper to flurries later Sunday morning, but again, snow showers will remain possible throughout the day.
Winds will continue to be blustery and temperatures will only reach the low 30s on Sunday.
A little better next week…only a little though
Temperatures will push back into the 40s next week. This is still below normal for April though.
Monday’s highs will hover near 40 degrees with low and mid 40s on Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday will fare a bit better, with mid and upper 40s.
Skies will be a mix of sun and clouds with perhaps a passing shower Tuesday. There will be a better chance for rain late Wednesday into Thursday.
The end of the week remains uncertain. A very sharp gradient in temperature is expected to develop, with more 30s and 40s north of the front and very warm air to the south.
Where this boundary sets up, and how it moves, will determine the weather we can expect late in the week.
