Thursday is going to be the warming day.
Temperatures will push into the mid-50s, allowing for the Finger Lakes to feel more like spring. However, it will be a cool start as the region starts in the low-30s. Temperatures will then stay up over the next two days, but cooler, winter-like weather will be on our doorstep by Saturday.
There will be some showers on Thursday, which will make for a split day. It shouldn’t be a washout though, according to the National Weather Service. Winds will also pick up during the afternoon, with gusts pushing into the 40s.
A cold front is expected to be draped across the region, making for a difficult forecast this weekend. It also means a lot of precipitation could be in the forecast, too. Rain, sleet, and snow are all possible when this transition happens late-Saturday before temperatures rebound for some again on Sunday.
The long-term forecast shows more unseasonable cold next week, though.
Showers will make their way into Western New York later this morning, and then, the winds of warmth work their way into Western NY. Gusts this evening will be in excess of 45 mph. #ROC #WNY #WX pic.twitter.com/hLWcGNsLrI
