WEEKEND FORECAST: Thunderstorms possible, building humidity in Finger Lakes

Expect a little bit of unsettled weather for this weekend in the Finger Lakes. There’s a chance for rain, or thunderstorms, every day- and the odds of making it through any of them completely dry is pretty low.

That said, no day looks like a washout at this point. FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil says that it starts with a chance for thunderstorms during the afternoon hours on Friday, a threat that will be renewed on Saturday as humidity builds.


Sunday looks like the driest day of the weekend, with the smallest chance for pop-up showers and thunderstorms. It will be humid that day, though, so a summer-like weekend for certain.

Montreuil says the forecast stays unsettled heading into next week with a better chance for strong to severe thunderstorms on Monday, followed by a cooler, rainy day on Tuesday.
