Finally above freezing in the Finger Lakes

Southerly winds continue to push warm air northward ahead of a slow moving cold front well to our north and west.Temperatures early Friday morning ranged from the teens to even some low 30s due to the different micro-climates that make our region so unique.The weather will be fairly quiet today. There should be plenty of clouds, but no precipitation is expected. High temperatures will generally make it into the mid 30s, though a few locations may not quite make it there.It is now looking more and more likely that the aforementioned front will be too far west to give us much of an impact tomorrow. While I would not be totally surprised to see a couple drops of rain or a snow flake, I think the vast majority of the time will stay dry. The further northwest, the better chance for these raindrops or flakes of snow. Highs will reach well into the 30s on Saturday, with a couple spots possibly hitting 40º.Some showers will be possible on Sunday as the front slides through, but I do not expect heavy precipitation. Both rain and snow will be possible depending on the exact timing of the front, but I feel the best chance is for snow.Have you heard about one of more of the storms next week? Don’t buy into the hype just yet. There are still a lot of uncertainties and it is simply too early to get worked up about anything specific. I do not think we will see anything but a few flurries from a storm system on Monday that will pass to our south. It is impossible to know much of anything about a system late in the week. Our main concern at this point would be Wednesday, but we are still in a ‘wait and see’ mode. Stay tuned!
