Behind the Cold Front
A strong cold front has moved through the Finger Lakes region early this morning.
Dewpoints are rapidly falling back through the 60s and into the 50s as dry, cooler air fills in behind the front.
Winds will be blustery from the southwest this morning with the occasional gust over 30 mph. The wind speeds will decrease this afternoon as the direction turns to the west, then northwest.
Temperatures are starting out in the low 70s and will rise several degrees through the morning, peaking in the mid and upper 70s.
Skies will become increasingly sunny throughout the day, though stray shower cannot be totally ruled out until the mid and late afternoon.
A clear, comfortable night is expected with lows dropping into the mid and upper 50s.
Friday will have a mix of sun and clouds with a few scattered, brief afternoon showers. Any rain that falls will be insignificant compared to the rainfall deficit we are acquiring.
Temperatures will be a couple degrees cooler tomorrow with highs in the low and mid 70s.
Mostly clear skies again Friday night will allow temperatures to fall back into the 40s. Some parts of the Southern Tier and Central New York could fall all the way into the low 40s.
Saturday will see increasing clouds, but rain is now looking less likely. The system that was potentially bringing rain now looks to be staying further south.
While keeping us dry, this change also would keep us cooler on Saturday, with highs struggling to reach 60 degrees. Under clear skies, low and mid 40s will be possible again Saturday night.
Beyond Saturday, temperatures will come back up, slowly working their way back towards the average high.
Sunday will be warmer than Saturday, but still cool for this time of the year with highs in the upper 60s. How much sun we get Sunday is still uncertain and there remains at least a small chance for some scattered showers.
Monday will likewise have a fair amount of clouds, but rain is less likely. Some sun will still break through the clouds, too. Highs will add a few more degrees, reaching the low or mid 70s.
Sunshine will increase on Tuesday and temperatures will warm a bit more. Look for highs in the mid and upper 70s with a few places even hitting 80 degrees.
High pressure will likely keep the end of next week sunny and dry with temperatures working above average. Highs Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday should range through the 80s. Of those days, Thursday looks like the best shot for a few places hitting 90 degrees, though Friday is also a candidate.
Warm, dry weather may well stick around through next weekend and into next week.
