Finger Lakes Forecast: Work week begins showery, cool

The weather looks like it will start out active in the Finger Lakes, as showers and thunderstorms remain in the forecast for both Monday and Tuesday.

Temperatures will also be cooler-than-normal, which will be welcomed relief for some – after some humid weather over the last few weeks. Temperatures will moderate as the work week moves forward, with the weekend looking particularly nice at this point.

FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil says that some sun in the morning on Monday will give way to showers and thunderstorms, which will begin developing during the late-morning hours. During the afternoon, those showers and thunderstorms will develop a little more aggressively.

Montreuil says that while there’s a slight chance for some very isolated hail or gusty winds, the thunderstorms and showers will be very manageable and short lived.

He says things will quiet down on Wednesday and Thursday before muggy air returns to the Finger Lakes on Friday and Saturday.
