WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Temps will moderate after cooler mid-week

The up-and-down weather pattern that we’ve been seeing over the last several days, looks like it will hang on here in the Finger Lakes.

How long will it persist?

Well, FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil says that cooler temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday will be followed by warmer-than-usual temperatures on Friday and Saturday.

After Tuesday, where high temperatures pushed well into the 40s for most, and some even got into the 50s — the region will struggle to get out of the 20s on Wednesday. By Friday, though, the pattern pushes back to warmer-than-normal temperatures — with highs getting into the 40s, and staying there through Saturday.

The National Weather Service says the warm weather will hang on Sunday, as well, but significant rainfall is possible as those temperatures hang around 50.

Then another shift back toward the cold, as forecasters with the National Weather Service say high temperatures will back off to around 30 degrees for the first two days of next week.

Montreuil says that this rapid up-and-down will be the biggest player in our local weather to watch. The timing of these ups-and-downs, with systems that bring precipitation to the region will keep forecasting tricky in the Finger Lakes. – Read more from FLXWeather.com
