Weather warming up mid-week in the FLX

After a couple of busy weather weeks lately, this first week of December will be rather tranquil.That is not to say that it will be nice most of the time, just that the chances for heavy precipitation are less than they have been recently.We are starting off the week cloudy as an area of low pressure has stalled over us. This low is weakening and will dissipate altogether in the next day or so. Some energy rotating around the low may bring a few afternoon showers or evening flurries to the area today, especially across the southern Finger Lakes.The chances for precipitation look less on Tuesday and Wednesday, though neither day can be guaranteed to be dry. The chances for precipitation on Wednesday will be related to a warm front lifting north. This front should help temperatures into the mid or upper 40s Wednesday and low or mid 50s on Thursday. Exactly how this all plays out remains a bit uncertain, so continue to check back for updates.By late in the week, a cold front should push through, with temperatures falling back into the 30s on Friday with rain showers changing to snow. Some lake effect to the east of the Great Lakes will be possible this weekend, though the heaviest snows will likely stay over the Tug Hill region, away from the Finger Lakes.Have a great week and continue to check back for the latest weather updates!– FL1 Meteorologist Dre Montreuil
