The entire region will likely see rain, with temperatures making it feel more like late-October than the first of the month.
Forecasters say chances of rain will ease as the day progresses, but parts of the area could see a quarter- or half-inch of rainfall by the end of the day.
While it will feel raw, the National Weather Service says it will be short-lived – as temperatures and humidity build back into the Finger Lakes on Tuesday.

Heavy rain and gusty winds will be possible as a weak cold front approaches the area. The biggest threat will be the flash flood risk – along the Southern Finger Lakes, and Southern Tier.
Strong winds within storms could take down trees where the ground is already soaked. Those same areas will be most-likely to see flooding impact on Tuesday.
Here's a peak at the long range forecast for Columbus Day weekend. At this time it appears temps have a good shot at being above normal, while precipitation is also forecast to average a bit above normal over the 6-10 day period. pic.twitter.com/8L2va9l98o
