Breezy Northwest Winds

Behind Thursday’s cold front, cooler air will settle into the Finger Lakes thanks to some breezy northwest winds.

These winds have set up between low pressure over eastern Canada and high pressure over the middle of the United States. Top gusts today and Saturday will reach 25-30 mph.

Caught up in this northwest flow will be a couple subtle impulses of energy. Combined with the daytime heating of the ground and the cool air above the surface, these impulses should touch off a few scattered showers.

These showers will develop late this afternoon and will be linger into the evening. Individual cells will be small and short-lived but could have some briefly heavy rain. A rumble of thunder or even some small hail cannot be totally ruled out either.

Not all areas will see rain today.

The threat for showers will continue into Saturday, especially during the morning and into the early afternoon. Again, not all areas will see rain, but it should not come as a surprise if a shower does roll into your town.

Outside of the showers, the sun will shine, especially this morning into the early afternoon.

High temperatures today will be in the low and mid 70s. Saturday will be near or just above 70 degrees. Overnight temperatures tonight will drop into the mid and upper 50s. Saturday night will dip into the low and mid 50s.

Temperatures Moderate

By Sunday, the weather will start to bounce back. The northwest winds will diminish and eventually turn to the south. High pressure will build in and keep the area dry.

Sunday should be rather sunny with a few fair weather clouds. No rain is expected. Highs will return to the mid and upper 70s.

Monday will continue the trend with most areas getting to at least 80 degrees. One or two late afternoon showers may be possible as a front slowly approaches from the north.

How this front impacts our area on Tuesday and Wednesday next week remains uncertain. There is a chance that we end up with little to no rain. On the other hand, widespread and/or heavy rain may also be possible. This should become clearer over the weekend and early next week.

Temperatures next week will continue to hover in the 70s or low 80s. The day-to-day temperatures will fluctuate based on the presence of clouds and rain.
