First Alert Weather: A pleasant, mostly dry Sunday

ROCHESTER, (WHEC) — We’ll round out the first weekend of fall with another rather nice day Sunday.

We’ll see a good deal of sun through the first half of the day before clouds begin to increase later in the afternoon and evening. The best chance of a shower will be brief and through the Finger Lakes late morning into the early afternoon. Otherwise, we should remain dry, but a bit breezy at times with a wind out of the west gusting to 25 mph. A warm front lifting through later this evening will increase our clouds and bring a few showers overnight.

The week ahead: Monday will likely be our only day in the 70s following the passage of a warm front, and it’ll be short-lived. We’ll see a mix of clouds and sun, with a few showers developing later in the afternoon/evening ahead of a cold front. Any showers should be out of here early Tuesday, but our temperatures will be dropping back into the 60s for highs the rest of the upcoming week. Overnight lows will drop into the 40s away from Lake Ontario. The bulk of the upcoming work week should remain dry, with a bubble of Canadian high pressure over the eastern Great Lakes. That should also bring a fair amount of sun to western New York. The sunshine and cool nights should help to move the fall colors along!
