One, and possibly two rounds of thunderstorms will move through the Finger Lakes region today following some storms overnight.
As of 7 AM, rain and thunder were moving into Western New York. These storms are remnants of activity that developed last night in the Midwest.
These will move east into the Finger Lakes this morning as showers and some rumbles of thunder. Some strengthening of the activity is possible, namely across the Southern Tier.
An isolated severe threat will be possible, especially the further east the storms go. Almost all the Finger Lakes region, however, should stay free of any severe weather.
By the midday hours, the storms should be southeast of the region, but a few more showers and storms may pop up during the mid-afternoon. Models are split on this occurring, so it will be a wait-and-see approach for this afternoon.
Again, severe weather is generally not expected from any afternoon storms, but southern and especially southeastern areas could see an instance of strong winds or hail.
The day will end with increasing sunshine and highs in the low and mid 70s. Tonight will continue to clear, with overnight temperatures dropping into the mid 50s.
Quiet and Warmer until the Weekend
Thursday and Friday will both be quiet but warm days.
Skies will be a mix of sunshine and fair-weather clouds, but no precipitation is expected outside of a widely isolated brief shower.
Temperatures will be on the rise with both days reaching the low and mid 80s throughout the Finger Lakes. Morning lows Friday will be around 60 degrees.
Friday night, a cold front will move through the area. Showers and a few non-severe thunderstorms will be possible, mostly after midnight. These will clear out before dawn, leaving Saturday morning dry with increasing sunshine.
The rest of Saturday should be sunny, but a few clouds will build back in Saturday night as another small front slides through. A brief shower may be possible early Sunday before the sun comes back out.
Temperatures on Saturday will be in the low and mid 70s. Winds will be from the northwest at 10-15 mph with gusts as high as 30 mph.
Sunday will be cooler with north-northwest winds around 10 mph. Look for highs to reach the mid 60s. Monday will be similar, with ample sunshine and temperatures in the mid 60s.
Warmer weather will bounce back, while the main chance for rain next week appears to be in the neighborhood of Wednesday.
