Rain expected to arrive in the region tonight

The Finger Lakes is going to continue experiencing the rollercoaster ride of temperatures over the next several days.

Some rain is possible late-Wednesday, into early-Thursday. However, the chance of rain will be a welcomed sight as the region has been mostly-dry over the last several weeks.

FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil says that showers and a few embedded thunderstorms will drop southeast into the Finger Lakes from Canada this afternoon after 4 pm. He says the best chance for rain will be across the western and northern parts of the region. After sunset, the rain will continue to spread southeast.

Areas west of I-390 and north of I-90 stand the best chance at seeing localized amounts of a half-inch or more. Most areas will see closer to a quarter-inch of rain, according to Montreal.
