Unsettled week as warm air returns to the Finger Lakes

Temperatures will be in the low 50s through Wednesday with numerous chances for some rain, especially on Tuesday.

Temperatures will be on the rise across the Finger Lakes once again early this week as south winds push warm air north. This flow of warm air from the south is the result of an area of high pressure off the coast of the Mid-Atlantic region and a significant storm system developing over the Great Plains.

As the warmer air returns to the Finger Lakes, clouds and a few showers will be possible throughout the day on Monday. The showers should remain isolated and light, and many areas will likely remain dry during the daylight hours today. Temperatures will rise above 50 degrees for most of the Finger Lakes this afternoon.

Showers will increase in coverage tonight and continue into Tuesday with several rounds of rain likely. Some thunder may rumble from time to time on Tuesday, especially during the afternoon and evening hours.

Rain totals through Tuesday night may reach an inch for some areas, especially after a burst of rain Tuesday evening along a cold front. Though temperatures immediately drop behind the front Tuesday evening, there will not be any lasting chang from this front. Temperatures will again break 50 degrees on Wednesday with some more clouds and showers.
