The National Weather Service says that despite a few showers or pop up thunderstorms this morning – the Finger Lakes region should get a break from heavy rain, thunderstorms, and damaging winds until mid-week.
That doesn’t mean it will be cooler, though.
Strong thunderstorms with heavy downpours and gusty winds are forecast for today. A few storms could produce damaging winds from the Western Catskills through the Poconos. pic.twitter.com/yeONMBDRBy

FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil explained in his morning update. “The rest of Monday should be mostly dry. A stray, isolated shower cannot be totally ruled out this afternoon. Any rain should be nothing like the last several days, if any develops at all,” he said.
Montreuil expects temperatures to push into the low-80s, with a mix of sun and clouds. On Tuesday, temperatures in the mid-80s can be expected.
Cooler temperatures are expected for the second half of the week after storms and rain roll through on Wednesday.
