Weekend weather in recovery mode after stormy Friday

The chaos of Friday’s weather across the Finger Lakes is behind us, and the forecast for Saturday and Sunday looks more like late-summer than mid-summer.

FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil says that gusty winds will be seen throughout the region on Saturday. The winds will usher in cooler, fall-feeling air that will only allow temperatures to top out around 70 degrees.

Some areas may not even get out of the 60s.

Fog will develop Saturday night, with lows dropping into the 50s.

The weather will rebound on Sunday, with temperatures ending up in the mid-70s during the afternoon hours. A few showers will be possible during the evening hours, but unlikely for a vast majority of the region.

Montreuil says that Monday is the next serious shot for rain in the Finger Lakes. However, he notes that there is a great deal of uncertainty within the particular forecasting models, which show a range of potential outcomes.

He says the region is in “wait and see” mode, right now.
