THE HEAT IS ON: Highs will approach 90 this weekend

If you’ve grown accustomed to only half of the weekend being good for outdoor plans in the Finger Lakes — the next three days will bust that trend.

The rainy, cool weather is long gone — and now — the first push of significantly warm, summery weather is coming. Temperatures for Saturday will still be comfortable, even after a warm from pushes through.

The rain chances will be incredibly minimal, according to FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil. He says that while a few widely scattered showers are possible, they should be mostly sunny — getting warmer by the hour.

He says the heat and humidity will really work into the area during the morning on Sunday. By mid-afternoon, he explained, the entire region should be well into the 80s, with some areas pushing 90.

He says that dewpoints will push well into the 60s, which means it will feel very humid.

Anyone with outdoor plans should plan on doing their part to stay hydrated — as the heat index will push well into the 90s.
