Cold front brings humidity relief to FLX tonight

What has seemed like a never ending barrage of storms and tornado warnings should finally come to an end later tonight.A cold front associated with low pressure west of Buffalo this morning will cross the region, ushering in cooler, less humid air and ending our thunderstorm chances.Before the front does so, we will have to deal with a couple more chances for thunderstorms, though severe weather should be very limited today. Radar early this morning showed a line of rain and thunder moving out of western New York. This should cross the Finger Lakes fairly quickly and be to our east by 10 or 11am. There could be a brief gusty wind, especially across the southern and eastern Finger Lakes, but I would be surprised if anything severe came out of this.We should get a break in the precipitation behind this line of rain during the late morning and noontime hours. However, more showers and storms should develop as the front creeps east. The western Finger Lakes are the least likely to see additional storms this afternoon, but the threat will gradually increase further east.Again, severe weather shouldn’t be an issue. But with how the weather has been over the last week, I won’t feel comfortable declaring the risk over until after the front moves through, which is should do by this evening. Expect a much cooler morning tomorrow, with lows in the 50s.For the latest local forecast, conditions, and live radar images visit the FingerLakes1.com Local Weather Center.
