Mini Dry Spell
The cold front associated with Monday’s rain is well to the east of the Finger Lakes Tuesday morning.
However, clouds still linger across the area. These thick clouds will persist into the late morning, after which they will break up as dry air continues to move in. The clouds should dissipate from southwest to northeast.
The remainder of the day will then be sun-filled. A blustery northwest wind will continue until the sun sets.
That wind will keep temperatures cool. After starting in the low and mid 50s, expect highs today in the mid to perhaps upper 60s.
Clear skies will continue into the overnight. Winds will become nearly calm, allowing for the temperature to drop. Morning lows Wednesday will range through the 40s.
River valley fog is also likely in the typically prone areas across the southern half of the region.
Once any fog burns off, Wednesday will be another sunny day. A few fair weather clouds will form during the late morning and afternoon, and some thin clouds high in the atmosphere will stream in from the south late in the day.
High temperatures will be warmer as winds turn to the south and southeast. Look for low 70s across the Southern Tier with mid 70s elsewhere.
Clouds will thicken Wednesday night as our next system approaches.
Weather Turns Unsettled
A pair of low pressure systems will move toward the Finger Lakes on Thursday. One low will be to our west over the Great Lakes while the second moves along the Mid-Atlantic coast.
The system over the Great Lakes seems to be favored to be more dominate. However, exactly how these systems interact and evolve will determine a great deal about our weather on Thursday. It should rain at some point during the day, but how much and when is questionable. At this time, it does not seem like the entire day will be a washout though.
Likewise, the temperature forecast for Thursday is uncertain. It will be cooler than normal, but just how cool is yet to be seen.
Showers are likely to linger through Thursday night and into Friday. There is some hope for dry weather during the afternoon. The rain Friday should be light and scattered. Temperatures will remain cool in the low and mid 60s.
A new system will approach the region on Saturday with some scattered showers and storms. A band of more widespread precipitation is likely either Saturday night or Sunday. This will be followed by improving weather conditions.
The first half of next week, at this early juncture, is looking dry with comfortably mild temperatures.
