Soaking Rain Monday, Showers Tuesday

Another widespread steady rain will fall in the Finger Lakes on Monday with well below normal temperatures.

Scattered showers are falling about the area this morning. The rain will be on and off throughout the morning hours.

These showers are spinning around an area of low pressure situated over the southern Great Lakes.

By the early afternoon, a wave of energy rotating around the low will push north toward the Finger Lakes. The rain will expand and intensify with widespread steady rain developing. Several hours of steady rain is likely into the late afternoon.

By evening, the steady rain will transition back to on and off showers which will continue through the night and Tuesday. River flooding and flash flooding are not expected. Poor drainage areas will continue to see generally minor water problems.

Temperatures are around 40 degrees early this morning and will struggle to rise more than a few degrees. Look for highs today to be in the low to mid 40s, which is 20+ degrees below normal.

Overnight, temperatures will slip back to around 40 degrees with some 30s in the higher elevations of the Southern Tier and Central New York. A few snowflakes could even mix in during the night over those areas.

Tuesday’s temperatures will be no different with most areas struggling to reach 45 degrees.

Slight Improvements

By Wednesday, this stubborn low pressure system will dissipate and move off the East Coast, allowing some improvement to our weather.

A new system will keep the chance for a couple stray showers in the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday. The best chance for rain seems to be during Wednesday night with only minor amounts falling.

Temperatures will return to the upper 50s and low 60s for Wednesday and Thursday. With ample cloud cover, low temperatures will be near 40 degrees Wednesday and into the mid 40s Thursday.

There will then be a chance for a string of several dry or mostly dry days starting Friday and continuing into early next week. It is too early to be certain of this, but it may be the best chance for extended dry weather our region has seen in some time.

Temperatures should remain near or slightly below normal through the weekend but may warm up next week. The threat for some patchy frost will need to be monitored over the weekend.
