The area is centered on a series of eleven thin lakes up to 40 miles (64 km) long, lying north-south like fingers.

Weather in the Finger Lakes, New York State

The large expanses of water in these deep lakes help to moderate the climate, preventing early frosts as the lakes release their stored warmth during the fall and winter. Average temperatures in summer reach 27°C (81°F) in July and drop to 0°C (32°F) in January and February with temperatures well below freezing at night and plenty of snowfall. The region has over 30 inches (76 cm) of rain each year which makes it ideal for successful wine growing.
