Strong gusty thunderstorms possible during afternoon and evening in Finger Lakes

Today will feel like mid-spring in the Finger Lakes and Central New York. High temperatures are expected to push through the 60s and settle in the low-70s.

There will be abundant sun with a steady breeze out of the southwest, but that will usher in some changeable weather.

What’s the weather risk today?


The thunderstorms will develop ahead of a cold front, which will send temperatures dropping overnight- and into the day on Friday. By Friday snow showers will even be back in the forecast.

However, forecasters are showing some concern that the thunderstorms developing later today could pack a punch.
