Showers turn to Flurries Monday

A cold front will cross the Finger Lakes this morning, putting an end to the brief warm up.

Temperatures are starting the day in the low 40s and will hover near 40 degrees through the morning.

Areas of drizzle and a few showers will be scattered about.

This afternoon, temperatures will start to drop through the 30s and rain showers will turn to snow.

A spray of flurries will develop south of Lake Ontario across much of the Finger Lakes this evening.

Accumulations, if any, will be very light.

Temperatures this evening will fall to near 30 degrees with mid 20s for most areas overnight.

Some lake effect snow showers may linger into Tuesday morning especially for Wayne County and areas east of Cayuga Lake.

Quiet but Cold Week

Any lingering lake effect should end Tuesday afternoon with skies turning sunny.

Despite the sunshine, high temperatures will only be near 30 degrees.

Tuesday night will have clear skies and calm winds much of the night, allowing temperatures to drop. While areas near lakes will stay in the low and mid 20s, outlying areas should drop into the teens.

Clouds will increase on Wednesday with a few flurries to the east of the Great Lakes. High temperatures will be in the low 30s.

Much of Thursday will be quiet as well. Winds will turn to the southwest, removing the lake effect from most of the region. High temperatures will reach the mid 30s.

Thursday evening, a little light snow will drift through with very little accumulation.

Friday looks to have some scattered lake effect snow with highs back to about 30 degrees.

An early look at the weekend shows a few more lake effect snow showers on Saturday with sunshine possible on Sunday.
