Finger Lakes cool between front & high pressure

Temperatures across the Finger Lakes this morning dipped into the low 50s, and high temperatures today will be below average, struggling to get much above 70 degrees.This summer chill is the result of high pressure centered this morning over Illinois and the cold front that moved through Monday evening, which is sitting just off the east coast.Winds around a high pressure blow clockwise, while they blow counter-clockwise around a low pressure.With the front’s parent low to our northeast and the high pressure to our southwest, we are in the perfect location for northwest winds and some cool air from Canada. The air may be cooler today, but it will still be a pretty nice day with a mix of sun and clouds and just a very low chance of a shower.As this high pressure meanders east, temperatures will start to moderate. A warm front will come through early Saturday or Saturday night (maybe with a few showers) to help temperatures rise. by Sunday, we could be near 80º, with some hot weather possible towards the middle and end of next week.So, whether you like it hot or not, there should be a temperature for just about everyone over the next week!For the latest local forecast, conditions, and live radar images visit the FingerLakes1.com Local Weather Center.
