Temporary relief from cold in sight, but long-term outlook is chilly

For those who have been hoping for a pattern change, the long-term forecast has ‘good’ and ‘bad’ built into it.

FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil outlined what he was forecasting for the next week; and even spoke to some of the long-range expectations for the forecast here in the Finger Lakes on Thursday.

There’s no snow in the forecast for the foreseeable future. However, temperatures are going to remain stuck in the ‘below-normal’ category for at least another 5 days.

Cloudy and cool on Canandaigua Lake.

Some change is on the horizon, though, as temperatures push into the 40s and even 50s heading into the middle of next week. That will feel great, but it won’t be long-lived.

Montreuil added in his update, “Unfortunately, as we head towards the beginning of April, temperatures look like they will retreat back into the low 40s and upper 30s with below normal temperatures expected to persist into at least mid-April.”
