Mild FLX Saturday leads to a stormy Sunday

The same high pressure system that brought frost to many areas yesterday morning is now having the opposite impact on our weather.The high pressure system is now located due east of the Finger Lakes, off the coast of Massachusetts. Combined with low pressure over the Upper Great Lakes, a broad area of gusty southerly winds have set up over our area.Add in some cloud cover from the approaching storm system, and temperatures early this morning were 20-25º warmer than at the same time Friday morning!Today’s high temperature should push well into the 70s today, despite the clouds remaining in place most of the day. Precipitation will be very spotty and light, with most areas seeing no rain at all.The storm system to our west will move through the region tomorrow, along with its trailing cold front. Temperatures ahead of the front should reach the 70s again after a mild night tonight. That should be enough for some thunderstorms to develop as the front moves through. Some of the storms could have some strong winds as they race eastward.Another shot of cold air awaits us behind the front, with temperatures falling through the 50s during the day on Monday.For the latest local forecast, conditions, and live radar images visit the FingerLakes1.com Local Weather Center.
