A strong storm system will bring rain and wind to the Finger Lakes starting Tuesday after a few flurries on Monday.
That strong jet stream aloft and a surge of warmer air pushing into the Great Lakes has spawned a few areas of light snow showers Monday morning. These snow showers stretch from around Buffalo northwest across the Upper Great Lakes. These flurries will drop southeast through the day and should bring some occasional light snow showers to the Finger Lakes. Little to no accumulation is expected from the snow, however.
Temperatures, which are starting the day in the 20s, will push into the middle 30s. A few areas could reach the upper 30s, while far eastern reaches of the Finger Lakes may hover closer to the freezing mark. Some breaks of sun may be possible towards the end of the day as the snow showers lift north and east.
The weather will be much more active for the middle of the week. A storm system will begin to take shape today over the central Plains before moving into the Mid-West tonight and the Great Lakes on Tuesday. Warm air will continue to be pumped northward out ahead of the system. After temperatures drop back into the 20s this evening, they should rise back into the 30s by dawn Tuesday.
