Spotty Showers Saturday

A disturbance in the atmosphere will swing into the Finger Lakes on Saturday, bringing a few scattered showers to the region.

After a mix of sun and clouds to start the day, cloud cover should increase during the late morning and midday hours.

A few scattered showers will start to develop by the early afternoon and will continue until just before sunset. Once the sun goes down, the showers will quickly dissipate.

The showers will not be overly widespread and many areas will likely get through today without any rain falling.

Those that do see rain will likely see only a brief period of precipitation. A couple of heavier bursts of rain will be possible and a rumble of thunder cannot be totally ruled out.

A little sun may be possible between showers as well.

High temperatures Saturday will mostly be in the mid 70s. West-southwest winds will gust over 20 mph at times.

Nicer Sunday

Sunday will be the nicer day of the weekend with an increase in sunshine and little to no chances for rain.

There may be some clouds to start early in the day and a stray shower or a bit of drizzle will be possible for a couple areas.

Sunshine should increase as the morning goes on with a partly cloudy afternoon as fair weather clouds develop.

Temperatures will again mostly be in the middle 70s with a gentle west-northwest breeze.

Unsettled Next Week

Another slow moving storm system will creep into the Finger Lakes and stick around for most of next week.

This system will not be a duplicate of last week’s but there will still be some chances for heavy rain.

Rain could arrive as early as Monday afternoon, or it may hold off until Tuesday. Wednesday looks especially stormy and rainy.

The system should start to depart on Thursday, which may end up being a fair day. At this early stage, Friday looks decent as well.
