Tuesday Rain

An area of rain is moving through the Finger Lakes early Tuesday morning with additional showers possible later in the day.

On and off rain will likely continue into the mid and late morning hours. A few additional showers may pop up during the early afternoon before a break in the weather.

The mid and late afternoon hours should be dry with some sun possibly breaking out.

After dinnertime, a couple isolated showers and thunderstorms will redevelop. These will only cover a small portion of the Finger Lakes.

After an hour or two, the thunderstorms will dissipate as the sun sets and the atmosphere stabilizes.

High temperatures should sneak into low 70s for much of the Finger Lakes, but 60s will linger over the eastern areas where rain is more likely to continue into the early afternoon.

In the wake of the rain today, some areas of fog will likely develop overnight and into early Wednesday morning.

Sunny, Warm Week’s End

After today’s rain, the rest of the week is looking quite pleasant.

Fog and a few morning clouds will burn off Wednesday, leaving sunny skies for the afternoon hours.

Look for a high Wednesday to reach the low and mid 70s with a bit of a gusty wind.

Thursday will be bright and sunny from start to finish. Temperatures will mostly be in the mid 70s with some upper 70s working in as well.

A few high, thin clouds will work in on Friday, but ample sunshine is still expected.

High temperatures should push into the low 80s by Friday.

Memorial Day Weekend

The unofficial start of Summer will play the part this weekend with warm and muggy conditions likely.

Saturday will likely end up as the warmest day of the holiday weekend with highs in the mid to locally upper 80s.

No precipitation is expected at this time, but that could easily change, as some scattered late day showers are expected further north.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be more likely Sunday and Monday. Of course, the details this early are still sketchy.

Temperatures those two days will depend on how the thunderstorm risk evolves but should remain warm with 70s or 80s.
