Temperatures Well Below Normal

An area of low pressure north of New York State will deliver a reinforcing shot of cold air, keeping temperatures well below normal through Wednesday.

Most of the precipitation associated with this low pressure system has already passed through the Finger Lakes this morning. One or two more showers may be possible this morning and again this afternoon.

The majority of the region, however, has seen all the rain it will see today.

Temperatures are starting out Tuesday in the mid and low 50s. With cold air moving in on blustery northwest winds, the temperature will have a hard time rising much today.

Look for afternoon highs to struggle to 60 degrees, which is 10-15 degrees below the normal high temperature for early June.

Skies will be mostly cloudy today, but some breaks of sun will be likely from time to time.

Wednesday will be much of the same, but perhaps with a bit more sunshine and an even lower chance of rain.

Temperatures will start the day around 50 degrees and will top out around 60 degrees.

Back to Normal

Temperatures will start Thursday in the 40s, but some sunshine and a southwest wind will bring warmer air back into the region.

Thursday afternoon’s high temperatures should be very close to the seasonal averages, with low and mid 70s expected.

There will again be a very small chance for a shower with most areas seeing no rain.

Friday looks sunny and dry. Winds will turn back to the north, keeping temperatures from rising above normal. High temperatures should reach the low 70s.

Temperatures should generally stick in the 70s through the weekend and into most of next week.

A shot of rain and thunder may be possible late Saturday, but otherwise, the weekend looks decent at this early point in time.
