Quiet through the weekend

High pressure is in firm control of the Finger Lakes and will keep our weather mild and sunny through the weekend.

Nothing more than a few fair-weather clouds should dot the sky for Thursday and Friday. Some areas of morning fog will also be possible in the typical areas.

Temperatures will be warm, but not too hot, as daily highs sit within the normal range for early August. Look for highs around 80 degrees today with low and mid 80s on Friday. Humidity levels will be low with dewpoints only in the 50s.

Winds will also be very light with a scarcely noticeable breeze from variable directions.

There will be a small chance for a pop-up shower on Saturday and again Sunday. Sunday will have a marginally higher chance for rain than Saturday. Most areas will get through both days with no precipitation.

Temperatures on Saturday will be similar to Friday with low and mid 80s. Sunday will be closer to today, with highs around 80 degrees.

Quiet weather will stretch into Monday as well. Temperatures will be back in the low and mid 80s with plenty of sunshine.

Turning More Active

Beyond Monday, the weather looks like it will turn more active.

First will be an approaching front from the northwest. This may not arrive until late Tuesday with some showers and storms. Depending on the timing, much of Tuesday could also end up dry.

That front will likely still be in the area on Wednesday, bringing an additional threat for showers and storms.

Low pressure may then ride along the front on Thursday, spreading more rain into the area. A new system may then roll in for Friday.

The details of these precipitation chances are sketchy this far in advance. The timing, position, strength, and path of the fronts and low pressure systems will need to be resolved further and could change our outlook.

At this time though, if you are looking for a window of dry weather, take advantage of the next several days.
