First Alert Weather: Wet at times, but warmer this week
ROCHESTER N.Y. (WHEC) — It’s a new week, and we’re seeing a new weather pattern. We’re headed back toward milder spring air, but that also means the chance for some rain, maybe some thunder.
The first round of wet weather moves in tonight with a warm front, quickly followed by a cold front by morning. Most rain should be gone by the time the sun is coming up Tuesday morning, giving way to a very nice-looking Tuesday. Temperatures should reach the upper 50s and lower 60s by late afternoon/early evening. This means the 50-degree guarantee will NOT be an issue for the Red Wings’ home opener, with temperatures expected well into the 50s at first pitch. We’ll remain dry during the day and evening hours.
Our next warm front lifting through by Wednesday morning will bring our next chance for rain and maybe a few thundershowers. The most widespread wet weather Wednesday should occur in the morning, with some rumbles. Then we’ll pop into warmer air, with our temperatures rising into the 70s. A few more thundershowers are possible during the afternoon and evening. We’ll see a better chance for more widespread showers once again by Thursday morning as another cold front moves through. This means we’ll start Thursday in the 50s, climbing into the upper 60s by midday, then dropping into the 50s again by evening with drying weather.
Easter weekend: We’re going to go the other way on Easter weekend, meaning flipping back to cooler temperatures. It won’t be a bad weekend, with highs near 50 on Saturday, but dropping into the 40s on Sunday. Aside from a few showers on Saturday, most of the rest of the weekend looks mainly dry at this point. We’re watching the potential for a system to move in early next week that could perhaps bring us a mix of some rain and wet snow. This is still a ways out, so we’ll alert you to any updates regarding the return of more wintry weather.
