Saturday will be quiet, but Sunday to feature heavy rain, high winds for parts of FLX

It’s going to be an active weather weekend, as forecasters pin down the rain, wind, and changing temperatures that are expected here in the Finger Lakes over the next 48 hours.

– A stalled out frontal boundary is going to cause a couple areas of low pressure to move through the region, according to FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil.

– While the heaviest rain will remain south of the area, some occasional showers may work their way into the Finger Lakes, especially for more southern areas.

– Temperatures on Saturday should hang around 40 degrees or a little above.

– The weather will take a turn, as high winds and heavy rain arrive back into the region around midnight. Montreuil says heavy rain will impact the region Sunday morning, before tapering off during the early-afternoon hours.

– Frequent wind gusts of 35 to 45 mph can be expected on Sunday.

High Wind Watches have been issued for parts of the region, but the Finger Lakes remains unwarned at this time. If that changes, FingerLakes1.com will update this story with the latest information from the National Weather Service offices in Buffalo and Binghamton, which cover our region.
