Day of Change

Clear skies and calm winds have allowed temperatures across the Finger Lakes to drop below freezing this morning.

Most areas appear to be near or just below 30 degrees with some mid 20s scattered through the typically colder areas.

Temperatures will rise quickly this morning as the sun continues to shine. By midday, most areas should be near or just above 50 degrees.

During the midday hours, clouds will start to work in from the west. At first, the sun will shine through the thin cloud cover, but as the afternoon goes on, the clouds will thicken. Temperatures will hold steady in the low 50s through the remainder of the afternoon.

The air over the Finger Lakes will be dry this afternoon. As rain begins to move in, much of it will evaporate before reaching the ground. Still, a couple brief showers before sunset cannot be ruled out.

By this evening, the chances for rain will increase. Several hours of steady light rain are possible after 8 pm with showers lingering through the overnight. Temperatures overnight will be in the low 40s.

Active Weather Pattern Continues

A few stray showers and some drizzle will linger Tuesday morning, especially early on.

Temperatures early in the morning will jump into the upper 40s across the Southern Tier and southern Finger Lakes while low 40s remain further north. This pattern will persist into the afternoon, with highs across the Southern Tier possibly as high as the mid 50s while northern areas struggle to reach 50 degrees.

Clouds will remain thick throughout the day, but no precipitation is expected before sunset. Just a few scattered showers will be possible overnight as a warm front pushes into the region.

A gusty south wind will develop on Wednesday behind the warm front, propelling temperatures upward. How warm it gets will depend on the progress of the front and whether much sunshine manages to work out.

Highs should at least be around 60 degrees but could end up closer to 70 degrees. A few stray showers or thunderstorms may be possible.

The chances for rain and thunder will increase Wednesday night into Thursday as the front sinks back south as a cold front. Thursday’s temperatures will depend on a number of factors with everything from 50s to 70s possible.

Rain and thunderstorms will again be possible on Friday as another system moves in. Temperatures ahead of this system should jump into the 60s.

An early look at next weekend shows some showers on Saturday with highs around 60 degrees. Sunday currently looks sunny and mild with highs into the 60s.

    Hi Drew, I’ve got t-ball starting Wednesday and Thursday in DeWitt (6pm both days) – it sounds like we’ll get the game in Wednesday but Thursday how does that look? Thanks!

      Hi Fellow T-Ball Coach! 😉 Thursday is tricky due to front position, but as of now, the evening looks dry.
