Scattered Snow Bursts

A spray of lake effect snow bursts will once again be present across the Finger Lakes on Monday and into Tuesday.

These will be the same types of snow showers that were present over the weekend. Individual snow showers should be brief though visibility may drop significantly at times.

Also like the weekend, sunshine is likely between the snow showers, which should quickly melt any minor accumulations.

Temperatures today will push into the upper 30s. Winds will be lighter than over the weekend, but a few gusts over 25 mph will be possible. The wind will continue to come from the northwest.

Snow showers will continue into the evening. A small disturbance will touch off a few more snow showers on Tuesday with similar results. The snow on Tuesday is most likely during the morning.

Overnight temperatures will drop into low 20s. Highs on Tuesday will push into the low 40s thanks to increasingly sunny skies Tuesday afternoon.

Temperatures Bounce Around

Wednesday should be a dry day with more sunshine than clouds. Winds will swing around to the south, helping temperatures rise. After morning lows in the mid 20s, afternoon highs should be near or above 50 degrees.

Thursday will turn cloudy with some rain showers, possibly mixing with a little snow in the morning and again in the evening.

Heavy precipitation is not expected as a weak system moves through. Without the sunshine and with the precipitation, temperatures should be held in the low to perhaps mid 40s Thursday afternoon.

Cooler air will move in briefly behind this system on Friday. Northwest winds may gust to 40 mph and high temperatures will stick in the 30s. Unsurprisingly, additional lake effect snow showers will be likely.

Temperatures should bounce back for the weekend as high pressure builds off the southeast coast of the United States. High temperatures Saturday will return to the 40s with at least 50s a good bet for Sunday.

At this time, precipitation is not expected either day.
