Rain, gusty winds, and thunder all in the forecast today

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

Rain, wind, thunder, and a whole lot colder … eventually.

Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected to roll through the Finger Lakes and Central New York through the day.

The National Weather Service says that means there’s an increased chance for strong-to-severe thunderstorms this afternoon or evening in Central New York, as well as a marginal flood risk across the entire Finger Lakes and Central New York area collectively.

The threat for damaging wind gusts will coincide with passage of a strong cold front. That will move through the Finger Lakes region during the late-morning and early-afternoon hours.

When will the rain end?

The soaking rainfall, which should bring between a half- and full-inch of precipitation by Friday morning will taper as the evening and overnight hours approach.

For parts of Central New York – don’t expect the rain to end until early-Friday. Meanwhile, places like Sodus and Geneva will likely see precipitation end between 9-10 p.m. today.

What comes next?

Things will actually be pretty nice over the three days that follow Thursday’s unsettled weather.

Temperatures will settle between 58 and 66 degrees for daytime highs through Sunday.

But next week that changes.

Daytime highs will be in the 40s for multiple days, with the threat of wet snow showers in higher terrain.
