Temperatures rose slightly overnight across the Finger Lakes, despite the presence of mostly clear skies.
A broad southerly flow is responsible for the warming as an area of low pressure has lifted through the Upper Great Lakes and into Canada.
Warmer air ahead of this system is moving north through the lower Great Lakes, including the Finger Lakes region. With skies remaining mostly sunny through the morning, temperatures should have little trouble rising through the 40s.
Some patchy clouds will move in for the afternoon, but there should be a good deal of sunshine as well. Temperatures will be above normal this afternoon with highs topping out in the low 50s. The south wind will be gusty today though, with peak gusts in the 30-35 mph range.
