WEEKLY OUTLOOK: Rollercoaster weather pattern continues in Finger Lakes

The National Weather Service and local forecasters agree that this week is going to be an active one.

Clear skies will become cloudy as we move toward evening; and by nightfall – there will be a moderate risk of rain. Steadier rainfall is expected during the late-evening, and overnight hours – but that should wrap-up before daybreak.

Throughout the week – temperatures will move from 5-10 degree below average, to 5-10 degrees above those seasonal averages. There will also be a near-daily chance of rainfall – with showers and thunderstorms developing by week’s end as temperatures push into the 60s.
