Tuesday will be another solid travel day ahead of Thanksgiving

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... more

Thanksgiving forecast will be dry, with plenty of clouds

Thursday will be a rain-to-snow transition for FLX

It’s going to be a rain-to-snow kind of Thursday in the Finger Lakes. It won’t be a washout, or ‘snowout’, but it will definitely be another ‘dreary’ day for those who call this usually beautiful scenery home. Temperatures will be moderate – with a couple places possibly reaching the upper-40s before things begin cooling off, and doing so rapidly. Winds... more

Significant winter weather event looming? Local forecaster says not so fast

Any sunshine that the Finger Lakes is experiencing this morning should be worn away by mid- to late-afternoon as a cold front approaches.

Rain showers will be possible in developing during the afternoon hours, which will trumped by a period of light rain as... more

Cold weather is here, the lake effect snow should taper off, and this weekend will offer quiet, warming temperatures. Friday, high temperatures will struggle to get past the mid-20s.

FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil says that after record-breaking cold morning... more

RECORD COLD: Region braces for first shot of ‘winter’ this fall

Here comes the cold. The weather was reasonable throughout much of the Finger Lakes on Thursday, but a push of Arctic air will plunge into the region — sending temperatures falling throughout the night. Forecasters are looking at two points in the next 48 hours where serious concerns could arise. The first is overnight, and during the early-morning hours when... more

NWS: Possibly record-breaking cold, ‘flash freeze’ possible tonight

FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil says it could feel like temperatures are in the teens, or even single-digits on Friday after a cold front passes through. High temperatures on Friday are only expected to top out in the mid-20s, and strong, gusty winds out of the northwest will make it feel significantly colder. How cold is cold, though? Well, historically... more

Finger Lakes will get first shot of ‘winter’ air on Friday

The Finger Lakes is set to see it’s first brush with truly winter-like weather this weekend.
