A Stretch of Great Weather

A large area of high pressure is building into the Great Lakes behind a cold front that has moved through the Finger Lakes early this morning.

The atmosphere still has plenty of moisture in it this morning and clouds are thick as a result. In time, dry air associated with the high pressure will take over. Clouds will break up later this morning and early in the afternoon from north to south.

This dry air will move in on a light north wind that will also keep temperatures in check. Look for comfortable afternoon highs around 70 degrees.

The overnight period will be quiet with clear skies and little wind. Valley locations will drop into the mid 40s while most other areas stick closer to 50 degrees. A few areas of fog will be possible towards dawn, especially in the river valleys.

Friday will be sunny with a few thin clouds in the Southern Tier and some afternoon fair-weather clouds region wide. Winds will continue to come from the north but will be even lighter than today. High temperatures will reach the low and mid 70s.

Friday night will be a touch warmer with mostly upper 40s and low 50s.

Thin clouds may try to work back in from the south on Saturday, but it is questionable how much success they will have. Regardless, Saturday will be our third consecutive day with no chance for precipitation.

Temperatures will remain close to normal with highs in the mid 70s.

The cloud cover forecast for Sunday is also uncertain, but at least some sunshine is likely. Precipitation is once again absent from our region.

Winds will turn to the southeast for Sunday. Most areas will see mid 70s again, but the I-90 corridor could reach 80 degrees.

Shot of Rain, then More Dry Weather?

Low pressure is expected to track north into the Great Lakes by Monday. A tropical air mass will move into the Finger Lakes ahead of this system.

Monday will therefore be a muggy and unsettled day. Clouds and precipitation should hold temperatures somewhere between 65-75 degrees.

Rain will be possible as early as the morning hours, but the late afternoon, evening, and overnight periods are when the most significant chance for rain will be. Scattered thunderstorms will be possible with heavy downpours.

The rain should clear out of the region very early Tuesday morning. The rest of Tuesday and all of Wednesday look dry. Beyond that, the forecast is uncertain, but the chances for precipitation currently look minor.
