First Alert Forecast: The second half of the weekend will not be as nice

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The calendar says October, but our weather was feeling more like early September today.

Usually this time of the year our temperature will only reach the upper 60s, but we managed to get into the upper 70s today. It is safe to say the second half of the weekend will not be as nice.

A cold front will slowly slide south nearing Western New York. As a result, inclement weather will make a return. Tonight, look for clouds to increase with a chance of a shower west of Rochester by morning. The temperature will fall into the upper 50s.

Sunday will bring clouds and occasional showers. Most of the day rainfall should be lighter side with rain totals mostly around .25 of an inch. We expect the temperature will rise only into the upper 60s. If you are going to the Bills game, you can expect similar conditions. It will not be heavy rain, but the probability of a shower at any portion of the day will be near 75%. The recommendation is to keep the rain gear handy if you are heading out to Buffalo.

This front will be moving slowly so any improvement will be limited over the early portion of the week. Expect more showers Sunday night, and there is the chance of some thunder for the end of the weekend. The chance of rain should diminish Monday, but you will find more hit-and-miss showers to start the week. The high temperature will be near 70° for Monday.

Finally, the front will be pushing south and east by Tuesday and Wednesday which should produce more sunshine. Temperature for both days will be in the upper 60s to near 70.
