Rain Chances Tuesday-Thursday

An area of rain is skirting along the southern part of the Finger Lakes region Tuesday morning.

Thankfully, the heavy downpours embedded within this area of rain are locked away to the south across Pennsylvania.

Mostly light rain will fall this morning across the Southern Tier and southern half of the Finger Lakes. A shower or two will also be possible further north.

Some of what is showing on the radar may not even be reaching the ground along the northern edge of the precipitation.

Rain will move east by the late morning and midday hours. Some glimpses of sunshine will be possible between clouds this afternoon. There will be a small chance for an isolated shower here and there. Most areas will not see additional rain though.

Isolated shower will continue through the night and into Wednesday. Showers may become a bit more numerous Wednesday afternoon with a rumble of thunder also possible. Still, many areas will not see rain.

Also, be on the lookout for some patchy fog early Wednesday morning.

Temperatures today will reach the low and mid 70s while Wednesday pushes into the mid and upper 70s.

An area of heavy rain remains possible yet uncertain for later Thursday. Confidence is very low on the track of this rain. Everything from multiple inches of rain to next to nothing is still on the table. The reality will likely be somewhere between those extremes. Stay tuned.

Drying Out?

A few scattered showers will be possible across the region early Friday, but conditions should dry out by the afternoon.

High pressure should build in and shield our region from more active weather across the Upper Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, and Mid-Atlantic region through the weekend.

There remains a chance some of this action could move in for the weekend, but the current expectation is for no rain from Friday afternoon through Sunday night.

Some showers will likely move through on Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday may have an afternoon shower next week but should mostly be dry.

Generally speaking, the weather will be less active next week. Any rain that does fall should be brief and showery, not widespread and heavy.

Temperatures this weekend and early next week will continue to hover in the 70s. A few 80s may start to show up as well, especially toward the middle of next week. Still, no big surges of high heat are expected.
