Sunny, Dry, & Mild

High pressure continues to maintain its grip over the Great Lakes with two more days of nearly the same weather expected.

Friday will have ample sunshine from start to finish. A few fair-weather clouds will develop during the usual late morning timeframe and dissipate this evening.

A stray, brief shower cannot be totally ruled out today, but they will be very few and far between. Almost all areas in the Finger Lakes should remain dry.

Northeast winds will blow at 5-10 mph with the strongest winds near Lake Ontario. Gusts there may approach 25 mph, with 15-20 mph gusts for the rest of the region.

High temperatures today will again be in the mid 80s with a few pockets of low 80s. Humidity levels will remain comfortable with dewpoints in the 50s.

Mostly clear skies tonight will allow temperatures back into the low 60s.

Saturday will be a near duplicate of today. The one difference will be an increase in thin cirrus clouds during the second half of the afternoon. These may filter some of the sunshine and will linger into the first half of the overnight.

Temperatures tomorrow will be in the low and mid 80s once again.

Rain Chances & Cooler Weather

On Sunday, winds will turn to the south ahead of a cold front. This will not lead to an increase in temperatures as much as it will humidity levels.

After some sunshine early on, scattered showers and thunderstorms will pop up Sunday afternoon. The entire region should see some activity, but areas west of Cayuga Lake seem especially favored for rain.

Winds aloft Sunday afternoon look light, which could lead to slow moving downpours. Minor, localized flooding concerns could arise. Severe weather is unlikely, though.

Temperatures on Sunday will depend on how the storms develop but should be able to get into the low 80s.

The cold front will move in sometime on Monday. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible.

Behind the front, temperatures will settle into the 70s for a couple of days. Lingering showers will be possible on Tuesday before conditions dry out for the latter half of next week.

By Thursday, temperatures may return to the 80s and will continue to build into the weekend. The next meaningful weather system will then move in towards the latter half of next weekend and early next week.
