Showers and a Few Storms

A cold front will cross the Finger Lakes region this morning, ushering in cool air for the afternoon.

Out ahead of this front, there are a few scattered showers and thunderstorms early this morning. These storms are not severe but contain a fair amount of lightning.

Most of the storms should exit the region by 8am, but with the front still poised to the west, additional showers and perhaps a thunderstorm will be possible through the midday and early afternoon hours.

Once the front passes from west to east, the chances for rain will drop. A little sun may even poke out at times this afternoon.

Temperatures will rise into the low and mid 70s by midday. As the front moves through, temperatures will reverse and drop this afternoon. By dinnertime, most areas should be down into the upper 60s. Blustery winds will turn to the west-northwest behind the front.

Skies will remain quite cloudy tonight with a bit of drizzle or some areas of fog. Low temperatures will be in the low 50s for most of the area with mid 50s in the typically warmer regions.

Quiet End of Week

Thursday will start off cloudy, but dry air will work in and skies should clear during the course of the morning. The afternoon should turn sunny.

A gentle north wind will keep the supply of cool air fresh. High temperatures will only reach the mid to perhaps upper 60s.

Friday will start with a few areas of fog and morning clouds, but the sun should quickly take over. However, our region will be sandwiched between two areas of clouds.

While clouds from Dorian to our southeast will stay out of or just clip the region, clouds from a disturbance dropping through the Great Lakes will move in late Friday. A stray shower late in the day cannot be ruled out, either.

Temperatures Friday will get a boost from a more southerly wind direction, topping out around 70 degrees.

The threat for a couple stray showers will continue into the weekend, but no significant precipitation is expected. High temperatures over the weekend look to be in the upper 60s or low 70s.

Chilly air will work back in for Monday, and especially Tuesday morning, when widespread 40s will be possible.
