Get ready for a warming trend in the Finger Lakes.
It won’t begin this weekend, but temperatures will really turn the corner in the next 5-7 days, according to the Storm Trackers Team.
Founder and Forecaster Jack Matthys says no major weather events are in store for the region this weekend. He says drier air will dominate the forecast today, and last through Sunday. Temperatures will be cooler- with daytime highs ranging in the upper-50s.
Then comes change.
“Our weather pattern starting Sunday will favor a true feel of spring and by later next week a feel of summer warmth,” Matthys said. “Temps in the 60s and 70s early next week with be replaced with upper 70s and 80s.”
The only cautionary part of the forecast, as is often the case this time of year, temperatures near bodies of water- like Lake Ontario will be cooler.
“There is also little rainfall expected next week. This will lead to rather dry conditions developing by late next week. This could be a concern for an increased threat for brush fires,” Matthys added.
