Including the cities of Niagara Falls, Medina, Rochester, Newark,
Fair Haven, Oswego, Watertown, Lowville, Buffalo, Batavia,
Warsaw, Geneseo, Canandaigua, Jamestown, Olean, Wellsville,

High pressure centered over the Carolinas and a weak cold front
approaching from Quebec on Tuesday will support gusty west to
southwest winds of 20 to 30 mph. These winds could gust as high as
40 mph across parts of the Finger Lakes region. Meanwhile…our
air mass will remain quite dry with midday and afternoon relative
humidity values lowering to 25 to 30 percent.

This will contribute to an elevated fire weather concern for Tuesday

A reminder that the annual statewide burn ban is in effect until
May 14th.
