It’s going to feel like summer this weekend.
Forecasters with the National Weather Service say that a warm, muggy pattern will continue to develop on Friday.
Some showers and storms will be possible, as result, during the afternoon hours. Those should remain scattered though. It’s a pattern that will maintain itself on Saturday and Sunday, though.
Forecasters expect the same ‘risk’ to develop during peak daytime heating, which will mean the chance for showers and thunderstorms along the way.

No day this weekend will be a washout – but keeping an eye to the sky will be important.
Temperatures will linger in the 80s; and the pattern is expected to hold into the middle of next week when a small break could be felt for the Finger Lakes.
Scattered thunderstorms expected again this afternoon; Saturday too. We don't have a well-organized threat for severe weather, but enough energy in the atmosphere for a few of the strongest storms to contain localized damaging winds and heavy downpours.#pawx #nywx pic.twitter.com/Yz3XFrE1Hi
