Heating up this week in the Finger Lakes

Forecasters say this week will be an incredibly muggy one, as temperatures stay well-above normal through Thursday.

According to Drew Montreuil, of FLX Weather, “Temperatures will warm from south to north this morning. By noontime, most areas should be at least approaching, if not exceeding 70 degrees. Fog will lift, leading to some partial sunshine. Sunshine is least likely over the Southern Tier, where southeast winds will keep some low level moisture in place.”

He says that high temperatures will reach the mid- to upper-70s. There will be a few 80s possible between Rochester and Buffalo.

Nighttime lows will be equally muggy and unseasonable, as temperatures and dew points resemble late-August – and not early- or mid-October.

“Tonight will be very warm and muggy. Dewpoints in the upper 60s will result in low temperatures only just getting below 70 degrees,” Montreuil added in his forecast update.

Tuesday and Wednesday look like more of the same – as 80s takeover. No rain is expected until the end of the week, when big changes are likely. Rain and thunderstorms will arrive along a frontal boundary – which will usher in serious change for the next two or three weeks.

After this week, high temperatures will likely stay in the upper-40s or low-50s, with nighttime lows getting into ‘frost’ territory.
