More rain, storms coming into the FLX on Monday

The forecast for Monday calls for more active weather in the Finger Lakes.

While the National Weather Service isn’t calling for the level of activity that was seen on Sunday, anyone in the region is fair game for the kind of pop up thunderstorm that could produce hail, damaging winds, and most-importantly torrential rainfall.

While hail and damaging winds are problematic and dangerous for a host of reasons, the biggest problem at this point is the already-soaked grounds throughout the area.

The region is collectively soaked, and while some areas have been spared from the very heavy rains that were seen on Sunday, the entire region is above-normal for rainfall.

FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil says that the low pressure system sitting over Lake Ontario on Monday will cause showers and thunderstorms to persist throughout the day.

He says there should be a lull during the late-morning, early-afternoon hours – but that it will be short lived, as a new wave of energy moves into the region causing a second round of thunderstorms.

These storms could bring strong winds or even some hail, as usual for this time of year, but Montreuil says that the severe weather threat is minimal.

A few areas hardest hit, like Canandaigua, Southern Ontario County, Southern Seneca County, and Northern Tompkins County are still difficult to get around. Travel advisories have been issued in parts of the region, which means extra care should be observed. Especially if more storms fire up on Monday.
