Weekend Weather Updates

A cool weekend is ahead for the Finger Lakes, but there has been some slight improvement in the forecast for Mother’s Day.

First, Saturday will be a cool but dry day. The sun is shining this morning across western areas while clouds remain across the north and east.

Everyone should see some sun today, but clouds will not completely leave the region either. No rain is expected though.

Temperatures will be a bit below normal with a light north wind. Most areas will see a high in the mid 50s.

Clouds will increase this evening and a few stray showers could even arrive prior to midnight. There will be a better chance for rain showers after midnight and into early Sunday morning.

The chances for rain should then drop for a good portion of Sunday. There will probably still be a few showers around, but an all-day light rain seems less likely now. There is even a chance for some breaks of sun, especially across more northern areas.

If the sun manages to come out, temperatures could jump into the 50s. Otherwise, look for highs in the mid and upper 40s.

Next Week Preview

A steady rain will eventually move into the Finger Lakes, either Sunday night or Monday. Rain will continue off and on through Monday and Tuesday as low pressure slowly moves through.

Temperatures Monday and Tuesday will be in the 40s.

Total rain amounts from Sunday through Tuesday will generally be between 1-1.5 inches.

Wednesday is the day next week most likely to be dry. With some sunshine, temperatures should bounce back into the 60s.

Temperatures will remain near or slightly below normal through the end of next week as a couple more systems spread generally light precipitation into the area.
