Morning Fog to Filtered Sun

In the wake of Tuesday’s rain, areas of dense morning fog have developed around the Finger Lakes.

Please use headlights and reduce speeds this morning. The fog will gradually burn off by mid-morning for most areas.

Skies will remain rather cloudy throughout the day. The cloud will be thin enough for some filtered sunshine and a few breaks of blue sky are also possible.

Winds will remain light today.

Temperatures will reach highs in the mid 70s before cooling back into the 50s this evening.

Thursday is looking very similar to Wednesday with some areas of fog early, then filtered sunshine the rest of the day.

Highs on Thursday will be in the low and mid 70s.

No precipitation is expected either day.

Clouds and Showers This Weekend

Friday will also be a dry day, but temperatures will retreat some as the cloud cover thickens up.

Look for highs on Friday to top out in the mid 60s.

The chances for rain will return Friday night into Saturday as a plume of moisture sets up along the East Coast.

The heavy, steady rain should remain well to the east, along the coast, but on and off showers are likely throughout Saturday.

As a result, high temperatures will likely end up somewhere between the mid and upper 50s and the low 60s.

A second system will move into the Great Lakes on Sunday, which could bring some showers or thunderstorms to the area late in the day or overnight.

Otherwise, it will likely be rather cloudy once again with highs in the upper 60s.

Temperatures should continue to be mild next week with some dry days, and some days with chances for rain.
