First Alert Weather: Weather too nice for November?

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A large area of high pressure is located from northern New England, stretching across Western New York, and extending into the lower Mississippi Valley.

This slow-moving weather system is bringing fair skies and pleasant weather to a good portion of the country, including Rochester. As a result, we will continue to expect an extended period of clear skies and dry weather to persist into the middle of the upcoming week. Today, we had a temperature in the low 50s which is seasonably cool for this time of the year, but a nice warming trend is expected for the next few days.

Tonight look for clear, starlit skies. The combination of dry air and light winds will once again produce some patchy frost for the overnight. The low temperature for tonight will be in the lower 30s and the mercury will likely fall below freezing for most communities south of the Thruway. In addition, remember the set your clocks back one hour (fall back) tonight as we return to standard time at 2 a.m. Sunday morning!

More of that bright sunshine is expected for Sunday. It will be a chilly start with readings in the 30s, but it will turn mild for the afternoon as the temperature will rise into the upper 50s. The nice weather continues into Monday and Tuesday with fair skies and unseasonably warm weather as the temperature for both days will run between 60 and 65 degrees.

An early look at Veterans Day shows that our weather should be pleasant with partial sunshine and readings near 60 degrees. However, several fronts will likely cross the area Friday and Saturday with showers and much cooler weather returning to Western New York by next weekend.
