Very warm temperatures remain in place across the Finger Lakes early Tuesday morning, but a cold front is moving through the area.
This front will bring cooler air back into the region on blustery northwest winds. Top wind gusts should be near or just below 30 mph today.
Temperatures will slowly retreat through the 40s this morning and early afternoon. By the late afternoon, the region should be down into the 30s.
A couple areas of drizzle or showers will be possible today, mostly during the morning hours. Any precipitation that does fall will be light.
Skies will remain overcast throughout the day but should break up tonight. Temperatures will fall back into the 20s as a result.
Minor Ice Event Wednesday
A weather system will take aim at the Finger Lakes for Wednesday.
It will be a race between precipitation and warm air at the surface late Wednesday morning.
For most of the region, it looks like temperatures should climb above freezing before the precipitation moves in. However, especially for areas along and north of I-90, at least a little freezing rain will be possible at the beginning of the precipitation.
Icy precipitation could hang on for those northern areas into the mid-afternoon before turning to rain. Ice amounts should still be minor, but some slick travel conditions will be possible.
Temperatures will eventually make it into the upper 30s with a few areas reaching 40 degrees. Overnight temperatures will hold in the mid and upper 30s with on and off periods of rain.
The rain should end for a time Thursday and temperatures will jump towards 50 degrees. Widespread rain will return Thursday evening and may end as a touch of snow Friday morning as cold air works back in.
A few minor lake effect snow showers will be possible Friday and early Saturday before the rest of the weekend turns sunny and quiet.
Temperatures will fall through the 30s on Friday, have highs in the 20s on Saturday, and return to the low and mid 30s on Sunday.
