Weather forecast: Another gem of a summer day

Some of the finest summer weather imaginable is in store for Western New York and the Finger Lakes courtesy of yet another blocking pattern that has set up across the country. Blocking patterns can either lead to lousy weather or lovely weather for many days on end. In our case, we’re again to be blessed by a lovely stretch. 

An area of low pressure parked across New England is relatively close to us, but far enough away that we’ll be spared any significant rain chances this week. Eastern New York gets wet, WNY won’t see rain chances climb any higher than 20-30% on any given afternoon this week. Building high pressure will allow temperatures to surge toward 90 degrees by the end of the week. As the blocking pattern breaks down, there could be a slight uptick in rain coverage into the weekend, but even there it’s difficult to imagine there will be much to track. That should spell a very Summery 4th of July forecast with warmth and limited rain chances.
