Stormy Tuesday, Wednesday, and maybe Thursday

A slow moving front will trigger rounds of showers and thunderstorms over the next couple days for the Finger Lakes and surrounding regions.

Tuesday morning is off to a sunny and quiet start. Temperatures are generally in the mid and upper 60s and will quickly rise through the morning.

Scattered showers and storms will begin to develop during the early afternoon. Initially, the storms will be scattered about in a disorganized manner.

Over time, they should coalesce into a couple semi-organized line segments. Within these line segments there will be areas of heavy rain and lightning, and areas of just light rain.

A few of the stronger cells could have some particularly heavy rain, frequent lightning, and gusty winds. A little small hail cannot be totally ruled out. A couple severe thunderstorm warnings may be needed, but widespread severe weather is not expected.

Storms will lose their punch as they taper to showers tonight. A few scattered showers will be possible overnight and into Wednesday morning.

The process will repeat itself on Wednesday with more afternoon showers and storms.

While Tuesday’s storms will move from northwest to southeast, Wednesday’s storms will track from southwest to northeast. The chances for strong storms is just a touch higher on Wednesday as well.

Thursday remains more uncertain, but a few more showers and storms could make their way in later in the afternoon.

Temperatures will reach the low and mid 80s today before rain-cooled air spreads across the region. Wednesday and Thursday will top out near or just above 80 degrees.

Quieter for the Weekend

By Friday, this system will finally be out of the picture and high pressure will build back in. This will deliver another stretch of quiet weather for the weekend.

Temperatures on Friday will be a touch cooler behind the system. Look for highs in the mid 70s with a breezy northwest wind. Those gusty winds will continue into Saturday, once again keeping highs in the mid 70s. Top gusts both days will be 25-30 mph.

Sunday will be a bit warmer as the wind drops. Highs should reach the upper 70s.

All three days should have a mix of sun and clouds. No precipitation is expected.

Winds will turn to the south for Monday. Temperatures will push back into the 80s. A late day shower cannot be totally ruled out, but it is a bit too early to be sure of much.

As our pattern has dictated the last several weeks, the next weather system will roll in next Tuesday with showers and storms.
