First Alert Weather: A nice fall weekend

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Our first weekend of fall is actually feeling like fall!

We will see a mix of sun and clouds through the first half of the day with temperatures climbing into the low to mid-70s. We will see increasing clouds late afternoon and early evening ahead of an approaching cold front. Expect showers to move in from west to east starting around sunset. They will move out after midnight and the sky will quickly clear. Lows will bottom out around 50 degrees. Cooler air aloft will allow isolated lake effect rain showers east of both lakes Sunday. This means a few showers are possible in the Buffalo area Sunday morning if you’re planning on heading to Orchard Park for the Bills game. It will not be a washout. Highs on Sunday will be a bit cooler in the upper 60s.

Our temperature trend for much of next week will be below average, but it will still be nice. Highs will hold in the mid-60s much of the time, with a good deal of sunshine and mainly dry weather through much of next week. Hurricane Sam may spread some showers into WNY by late next week. It’s too early to forecast, so for now the forecast remains dry.
