finger lakes weather forecast rain map sunday september 9 2018 monday september 10 2018
Most of the Finger Lakes should see between 1.5 and 2.5 inches of rain with locally higher amounts across the eastern Finger Lakes and Central New York.

Quick Updates & Important Links

Here are the latest expectations on the heavy rain event expected for the Finger Lakes, as well as a couple of links to help you stay informed.

My next update will come Monday morning.

  • Rain is unlikely to reach the ground in the Finger Lakes until after dark Sunday, even if the radar shows rain overhead.
  • Most of the region should see 1.5 to 2.5 inches of rain. The Southern Tier and eastern Finger Lakes are most likely to see over two inches with locally over 3 inches possible.
  • Rain amounts are expected to be higher in these areas due to a band of heavier rain that should develop Monday evening while areas further west begin to dry out.
  • Rain should be mostly over by Tuesday morning, with just a few scattered showers remaining.
  • The flood threat, with these rain amounts, is relatively low. Some flash flooding and small stream flooding will be particularly possible in the localized areas of 3+ inches Monday evening.
  • The amounts listed on the map above are general guidelines only. Amounts will vary from what is on the map.
  • Strong southeast winds of 35-45 mph will be possible and could lead to sporadic power outages.

    I’m looking for Goat milk soap. Where do you sell it. I like your site as well. I took meteorology at SUNY Oswego during the blizzard of1966 with Dr. Sykes. We called him the boy scout. He was a boy scout leader at the time and often came to class in his uniform. He said he would give an A to anyone who would go with him to measure the snow. I NEEDED an A, I was pretty awful in remembering cloud types. He was a great teacher and that winter we all carried “a big stick.” Cold, but fun. Thanks for doing a good job. But, I still need Goat milk soap
