NWS: Showers will develop throughout day in FLX

Showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast again on Thursday, and even though the next several days look rainy — a clearing is in the offing.

The National Weather Service says that the risk for showers will decrease each day between Thursday and the end of the weekend — but after that — things will really turn around.

An extended run of dry, sunny, warmer conditions are expected for the start of next week. Temperatures until then will struggle to move through the 60s, but that will also mean that temperatures will be very comfortable for kids getting back into the swing of school.

Here’s the extended forecast for the Finger Lakes:
