Cold Front

A weak cold front over the Upper Great Lakes will move into our area this afternoon.

Out ahead of the front, skies are starting the day quite sunny across the Finger Lakes. Sun and clouds will persist through the morning hours before skies become increasingly cloudy this afternoon.

Showers should begin to pop up during the mid-afternoon hours, though an early afternoon shower cannot be ruled out completely. Scattered showers and a few rumbles of thunder will persist through the remainder of the afternoon.

While all areas will have a chance for some rain, areas along and north of a Dansville to Penn Yan to Auburn to Syracuse line will have the best chances for rain. To the south of this area, there will be areas that stay dry through the afternoon.

Southerly winds will blow at speeds up to 10 mph. Combined with the morning sunshine, temperatures will push into the mid and upper 70s early this afternoon.

The evening should be mainly dry as rain showers push northward, but new showers will move in from the south after midnight. This time, it will be the southern areas that will be favored for rain during the overnight.

Showers will creep northward during the early morning hours Wednesday. During the morning, scattered to numerous showers will be throughout the area. During the afternoon, the focal point will shift back into the northern Finger Lakes, but the showers may be simultaneously dissipating.

Temperatures on Wednesday will be cooler with the clouds and showers and the eventual loss of the light southerly breeze. Only a few warm pockets will hit 70 degrees while most areas sit in the mid and upper 60s.

Less Rainy Forecast

There may be a few lingering showers Wednesday night and early Thursday, but for the most part, the unsettled weather will be transitioning to a couple days of quieter conditions.

Sunshine will gradually increase on Thursday, allowing temperatures to rise back into the low 70s.

Mid 70s are likely on Friday, with sunshine mixing with and at times being filtered by increasing thin clouds.

There will be another weather system that will pass through this weekend. Scattered showers look likely on Saturday, but the day does not look like a total washout.

Like tomorrow, temperatures will take a step back with the clouds and showers with highs mainly in the upper 60s.

A morning shower may linger on Sunday, but sunshine is expected to increase as the day goes on. Temperatures will return to the low 70s.

Next week should start off quiet with sun and clouds on Monday with a high at least in the mid 70s.

Some areas may flirt with 80 degrees toward the middle of next week with a chance for pop up showers and storms. Temperatures should take a step back toward the 60s later in the week behind a cold front that should eventually move through the area.
