The spring season is by far one of the most turbulent of the calendar year. Warm, cold, chilly, rainy, snowy, and everything in-between.
Over the next several days — the region will get a full-spread of that — as forecasters look at a truly-typical spring weekend in the Finger Lakes.
Here’s a quick look at how the next several days play out, according to FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil:
Friday: High winds with gusts that exceed 50 mph in some places. Locations in Western New York and the Western Finger Lakes will see the greatest reported gusts. Temperatures will push toward 70 degrees, even though there will be a good chance for some rain throughout.
- The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Watch for parts of the region. Click here to see the latest on that advisory.
Saturday: Temperatures crater some 30-degrees as highs struggle to push beyond the mid-30s. It will be sunny, but a cold one for sure.
Sunday: Temperatures again struggle to get near 40. There will be plenty of sunshine, but it won’t feel very spring-like.
Monday: Temperatures will stay cold — with highs in the mid-30s, but there will also be a chance for some accumulating snow. There’s low confidence in this part of the forecast, though. So stay tuned.
Tuesday & Beyond: Temperatures rebound — pushing toward the low-40s — but that won’t mean significant improvement. Precipitation is in the forecast for both Tuesday and Wednesday.
