There’s plenty of warmth to go around as we transition into the overnight hours on this Sunday. Humidity continues to keep things feeling more “summer-like” for one more night with temperatures settling in the 60s under partly cloud skies. Clouds increase throughout the night as we watch a total lunar eclipse graze our skies! Outside of a few pop up showers and rumbles that hit parts of the Finger Lakes Sunday the majority of us have gotten away rain free over the weekend, but that will change on Monday.

Don’t forget! A total lunar eclipse will occur SUNDAY NIGHT with peak eclipse from 11:30pm-1:00am. While skies won’t be completely clear as we monitor incoming clouds from an approaching front, trends are pointing in a partly clear direction with decent opportunity to view the sky show. Here’s an idea of what to expect:

Active weather arrives Monday after a warm and mostly dry start to the early morning. A stronger cold front will be on the approach with scattered showers developing by mid morning and storms likely to fire by midday. This round of rain and storms have a much better chance at becoming strong to severe around given the strength of the front. I’d pack the rain gear heading to work and keep eyes to the sky if planning to be out and about during the day as any storms will be fair game to contain heavy rain, gusty winds, hail and lightning.

Showers and storms fade after dinner as temperatures fall from the 70s into the 50s and 40s into Tuesday morning. This front will send a noticeable pattern shift with a much cooler and comfortable feel with highs back in the 60s on Tuesday and lower humidity into next week. By the middle of the week we expect overnight lows to fall back into the 40s and afternoon highs to climb in the 60s before things warm up again by the end of the week. We could be looking at another boost of summer-like air by next weekend.
