It’s going to be an up-and-down weekend in the Finger Lakes.
Temperatures are going to begin trending upwards through Sunday, until a cold front pushes through the region — dropping temperatures significantly. While high temps will struggle to get into the 50s on Monday, the weather will be warm and comfortable on Saturday and for part of Sunday.
FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil said the following about Sunday’s forecast:
“The center of the storm system over the Great Lakes will pass by to the north on Sunday.
As the storm tracks east, it will send a powerful cold front through the Finger Lakes late Sunday.
Out ahead of this front, strong winds will develop, especially over higher elevations and for areas between Rochester and Buffalo.
Wind gusts of 35-45 mph are likely all across the region, but the windiest spots could see gusts as high as 50 mph. This could be strong enough for some sporadic power outages.
The wind will be strong all of Sunday but will be strongest in the late afternoon as the front plows through.
Along with the wind, a band of rain, some heavy, will move through the region with many areas seeing around a half-inch of rain.”
Saturday and Sunday will feature temperatures in the 70s, but evolving conditions — as the peak of warm, sunny weather makes it to the Finger Lakes on Saturday.
