Only Small Rain Chances

For most of the Finger Lakes, the next two days will be dry and warm with a good deal of sunshine.

A small area of high pressure is moving through the Great Lakes and is shifting the focus for unsettled weather further south.

As a result, the sun is out this morning and much of the day should be sunny. Some fair-weather clouds will bubble up later this morning and continue through the afternoon. Thin clouds will also be possible from time to time, mostly in the southerly half of the region.

Winds will be from the southwest today at 5-10 mph, bringing some warmer air into the region. Highs today should be into the low and mid 80s.

Afternoon thunderstorms over Ohio will move into Pennsylvania tonight. A few showers and maybe a rumble of thunder will skirt across the Southern Tier tonight on the northern edge of this activity. This rain should mostly stay south of a Dansville-Penn Yan-Cortland line.

Temperatures tonight will drop to around 60 degrees and will quickly rise Friday morning. Another day with highs into the low and mid 80s is likely.

Sun will mix with clouds once again, but on Friday, there will be a greater chance for a few isolated, small showers and thunderstorms. These will pop-up in the afternoon.

Temperatures Continue to Fluctuate

A cold front will move through late Friday night with showers and a few rumbles of thunder. By 9 AM Saturday, the region should be cleared of any lingering rain.

The rest of Saturday will have sunshine mixing with fair-weather clouds. Temperatures will fall slightly, but highs will still reach the mid 70s.

Another front may touch off a couple showers Sunday morning and will push temperatures back further.  Sunday’s highs will be in the mid and upper 60s.

Monday will be another sunny day as temperatures start to warm back up. Look for highs in the low 70s.

A persistent southerly flow will then set up and temperatures will turn hot. Tuesday will have highs well into the 80s, while 90s become possible by Wednesday.

The weather toward the middle of the week is uncertain, however, as the remains of Tropical Storm Cristobal could be tracking north after an early week landfall somewhere along the central or western Gulf Coast.

By next weekend, another push of cooler air will be working in with several days of below-average temperatures likely.
