Upstate New York's weather this week will be marked by plenty of sunshine and dry weather. A little too dry, in fact.

The only chance for rain this week will come on Tuesday when a weak, moisture-starved cold front slides through Upstate New York.

This front will touch off nothing more than a couple isolated, light rain showers Tuesday morning for Western New York, the North Country and the Adirondacks.

Showers may be a bit more numerous further south and east with an isolated thunderstorm as well, especially across Central New York into the Catskills and Capital Region.

Still, even in these regions, many locations will see no rain, and those that do will see insignificant amounts.

The rest of the week will be sunny with no precipitation expected.

Almost all Upstate New York has seen below normal precipitation over the last three months. Pre-drought conditions are widespread through the region, and a full week or more with no significant rain will not help.

Along with the dry weather, a dry heat is expected on Monday with highs approaching 90 degrees in the Finger Lakes and Capital Region, as well as along I-90 through the Syracuse area and Mohawk Valley. Temperatures will range through the 80s for most of the rest of the region.

Tuesday will have temperatures in the 80s, while Wednesday mostly tops out in the 70s behind the front. Temperatures will build back up Thursday into Friday, when more 90 degree readings will start to show up.

Here are the details day-by-day:

Monday, July 9

Skies will be mostly clear with bright sunshine. No precipitation is expected.

Temperatures will push towards 90 degrees in the Finger Lakes and Capital Region with 80s elsewhere. Humidity levels will remain low.

Tuesday, July 10

A few scattered showers will dot the region as a front moves from northwest to southeast. Most areas will probably not see rain, with those that do only seeing a little.

High temperatures will mostly be in the low and mid 80s. Parts of the Capital Region could sneak up to 90 degrees.

Wednesday, July 11

A few clouds early in the day will give way to mostly sunny skies. A north wind will blow and could be a bit gusty at times.

Temperatures will be at their coolest for the week, with highs mostly in the mid and upper 70s and just a few low 80s showing up.

Thursday, July 12

Bright, sun-filled skies will again be in order with no rain expected.

Temperatures will start to rise again, with most areas in the mid 80s. Higher elevations will be more likely to see low 80s with a few upper 80s in the typically warmest areas.

Friday, July 13

Sunny dry weather will continue with no rain and few clouds expected.

High temperatures will continue to rise with upper 80s and low 90s for all but the higher elevations.
