Our stretch of dry weather will come to an end today, but most areas should not see too much in the way of rain.
A frontal boundary extends north to south from the Great Lakes to the Florida Panhandle this morning. Out ahead of this front, warm, humid air is in place. Behind the front, it is dry and chilly.
Waves of disturbed weather will move along, and out ahead of the front today. These disturbances are expected to either remain to our west or pass to our east.
While showers are likely today, and are already falling in some areas, the threat for heavy rain and thunderstorms is small.
Rain will be most likely during the early to mid-afternoon, and again during the late evening and overnight period. Outside of these time periods, a few scattered showers will also be possible.
For the most part, rain amounts should be well under a half-inch. A few localized areas could see between a half-inch and one-inch. Flooding is not a major concern.
Temperatures today will mostly be in the upper 60s and low 70s thanks to persistent cloud cover and the scattered showers.
The front will pass through the Finger Lakes by dawn Tuesday, ending the rain.
Below Normal Temperatures
Cool air will settle into the Finger Lakes behind the front.
Skies will clear Tuesday morning, leaving a sunny afternoon. However, northwest winds gusting to around 30 mph will limit how warm we get. Look for afternoon highs Tuesday in the mid 60s.
Winds will drop by nightfall and skies will remain clear throughout the overnight. Valley locations will drop into the mid 40s by Wednesday morning with some areas of fog. Otherwise, morning lows will be in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees.
Wednesday should remain sunny. Winds will swing around the southeast, allowing temperatures to moderate. Afternoon highs will be near normal, reaching the mid 70s.
Unsettled weather will move back in on Thursday. Like today, the activity looks disorganized with the heaviest rain falling elsewhere. Still, showers will be possible throughout the day.
With the clouds and showers, highs Thursday will struggle to reach 70 degrees. Many areas will get stuck in the 60s.
The chances for rain will drop but not completely disappear on Friday. Any rain that falls should be brief and light. Temperatures will remain in the upper 60s.
Some showers and thunderstorms may be possible this weekend, especially on Sunday, as temperatures return to the upper half of the 70s out ahead of the next frontal boundary.
