Change is in the air.
While parts of the Southern Tier saw serious rainfall – upwards of 4 inches in some places, which prompted closures of schools and roadways – the Finger Lakes escaped any serious issues as Florence passed through.
FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil says an active pattern is setting up, which will prompt some changes in the next 10-days.
Temperatures will get more comfortable on Tuesday and Wednesday, as the mugginess departs – but things will heat up again on Thursday and Friday – as summer officially comes to an end.
More thunderstorms and showers will be possible on Friday and Sunday – as systems line up and clip the region, according to Montreuil.
Areas of morning fog across the Srn Tier will dissipate by midday. A warm and humid day is expected today with temp 5 to 10 degrees above normal with highs 75 to 80F. A few spotty afternoon showers are possible away from the lakes. About 10 degrees cooler on Wednesday. #NYwx pic.twitter.com/ZGiLHuLClI

Heavy rain has stopped. Be advised lingering flood issues will persist across the #SouthernTier this morning. Today will be humid & warm with a few more showers. Cooler, less humid air moves in (briefly) overnight.

A few areas of fog to start the day, otherwise skies become partly sunny. Highs will be near 80 this afternoon. There will be a very slight chance of a shower this afternoon, but most areas will remain dry for much of the day. pic.twitter.com/Y6g62Z8QoZ
