The Finger Lakes has escaped the icy grip of winter. Along with most of the eastern half of the country, temperatures will continue to be well above normal.
High pressure is approaching the area from the northwest for the start of the week. Some cooler air has slid into the Finger Lakes on north winds as the high works in. This should push temperatures down from the warmth of the weekend, but only for Monday. Look for highs mostly in the low 40s today. Skies will remain sunny, though, with no precipitation expected.
Winds will swing back around to the south by Tuesday as a weak frontal boundary approaches. This will spread some clouds into the Finger Lakes during the day with a few scattered rain showers Tuesday evening. Temperatures Tuesday should reach well into the 40s and low 50s.
Temperatures really start to warm up for the middle of the week as a southerly flow continues to feed warm air into the region. Temperatures Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday could all set new daily records.
Temperatures should at least reach the mid 50s on Wednesday, with 60s likely on Thursday and possibly Friday as well. Some showers may be possible Thursday night and early Friday, but most of the remainder of the time will be dry.
