According to forecasters the last time we reached the upper-80s here in the Finger Lakes was in mid-June. FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil says June 19th, to be precise.
Nearly a month later, the Finger Lakes will experience one of the hottest days its felt all year. South winds will push hot air into the region — spurring temperatures to jump into the upper-80s for most.
It won’t feel as humid, though.
The drier air should keep the threat for thunderstorms down — until the late-Thursday hours.
The main threat with this event, like the last several, will be the increased flood threat. Thursday night through Sunday — forecasters believe — will provide a few chances for strong storms, which could dump a lot of rain on already-soaked areas.
