Area of low pressure continues to make an impact on the region through Friday night. A frontal boundary with this system brings showers and thunderstorms for the evening. Brief downpours along with gusty winds as this system moves through from west to east. Heaviest rainfall coming to an end before 7 pm, then a chance for light showers through the overnight. Lows Friday night near 40 degrees.
Dealing with wrap-around moisture for Saturday giving us a chance for lake-enhanced showers. Expecting mainly rainfall, but some wet snow may also mix in early in the day. Main concern Saturday, though, being strong winds. Sustained winds out of the west 15-20 mph and gusts of 40 mph or more possible at times. Winds out of the west keeping temperatures colder than average with highs near 50 degrees. We’re dry for the evening with some late day sunshine also expected. Increasing clouds for Saturday night as another area of low pressure moves into the region.
Depending on the timing of this system, we could see some snowfall with temperatures close to freezing late Saturday night into early Sunday. Best chances to see snowfall being in the higher elevations of the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes where close to an inch of accumulation is possible. Showers continue through the morning, mixing with and turning to rainfall by the afternoon as temperatures warm above freezing. Highs Sunday into the mid to upper 40s. High pressure builds in late day Sunday keeping us dry through the overnight and for the start of Monday. Chance for showers returns late day Monday and continues through the workweek.
