First Alert Weather: Murky weather lingers into Tuesday

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Do rainy days and Mondays get you down? Monday was a classic murky day with lots of low clouds, scattered showers and some drizzle. That will continue into tonight with some areas of patchy fog, as well.

The slow-moving area of low pressure responsible for this unsettled weather will slowly weaken on Tuesday, but we’ll remain mostly cloudy. Overall it’ll be a drier day but still plan on a few showers, especially through the morning. If we’re lucky, we’ll see a few breaks of blue before the sun sets, but this would be very short-lived.

Wednesday will continue to see some slow improvement, with a few spotty showers and a few more breaks of sun mixed in. Thursday should be mainly dry, but the upper-level low remains overhead, keeping us rather cloudy and a little unsettled. This pattern will begin to move out of here by the weekend, but not before an increased chance for showers again Friday into Saturday, then clearing Sunday and Monday.

As far as temperatures go, we’ll remain in the 60s for the next day or two, then slowly climb into the lower 70s toward the second half of the workweek. There are growing signs that we’ll see a significant warm-up by late in the weekend and next week, with highs rebounding back into the 70s.

Just how warm, and how long does the warmth stick around? Those are details the First Alert Weather Team will be working on this week. Stay tuned! If you’re a fall weather lover, give it a week or two, and we should flip the pattern back around once more.
