Below Normal Temperatures Continue

The core of this cold air mass is located over the Finger Lakes Wednesday morning, which means after another chilly, cloudy day, temperatures will start to moderate.

Before that can happen though, Wednesday will turn out rather similar to Tuesday.

Clouds are thick across the region this morning with one or two small, isolated rain showers scattered about. Temperatures are starting the day around 50 degrees.

Winds will continue to come from the north between low pressure of the New England coast and high pressure over the Great Lakes. The wind speeds will be significantly less today than in recent days, with top gusts less than 20 mph.

The cloud cover should break up some this afternoon, allowing for some glimpses of sunshine from time to time. A scattered shower or two will remain possible, especially over Central New York.

Temperatures will reach into the low 60s for daytime highs before slipping back into the 50s and 40s tonight as skies become partly cloudy.

Slow Improvement

The weather should slowly return to more typical June weather over the coming days.

Thursday will likely have a fair amount of cloud cover once again as warmer air starts to push north. One or two showers will be possible again, with most areas seeing very little if any rain.

Temperatures Thursday should break back into the low and mid 70s thanks to some southerly winds.

Friday looks more sunny than not. However, winds will swing back to the north, putting a limit on the temperatures. Look for highs Friday afternoon to mostly be in the low 70s.

A batch of rain will move towards the region on Saturday. Some of this rain could be quite heavy, but at this time, it looks like most of the rain will move into Pennsylvania. If you have plans Saturday, keep checking back as the position of the rain becomes more certain.

Temperatures Saturday will range from the upper 60s or low 70s if it does not rain, to the low 60s if it does.

Sunday looks mostly sunny with comfortable temperatures in the low 70s.
