The National Weather Service calls for another round of rain along a warm front tonight. The next system arrives Friday into Saturday, bringing periods of heavy rain and thunderstorms.

A batch of light rain will move south to north across the region tonight with sustained winds around 15 to 20 mph and gusts 25 to 35 mph. Heaviest rainfall potential will be from the Finger Lakes to Oneida county. Lows tonight will fall only into the lower to mid-40s.

More significant rainfall will be heading our way later this week, with the heaviest amounts looking to occur Friday night. Streams and rivers are already running above normal, so be on guard for locally heavy rain, possible flooding, and commuters should be water wary.
