First Alert Weather: Wet, Soggy Weather Set to Return to Rochester

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The sunshine this morning was nice – while it lasted.

A low-pressure system located in the Midwest with an associated warm front is marching towards Western New York. This boundary will stretch from west to east and will eventually end up very close to the lower Great Lakes during the next 48 hours. As a result, wet weather will be moving into Western New York tonight. Look for steady rain to develop this evening and there could be a few downpours after midnight. The rain will vary in coverage from time to time tomorrow, but overall the News10NBC First Alert meteorologists expect a high probability of rain right into Tuesday night. In addition, there could be some patchy fog south of Rochester. The temperature will be in the 50s during the day and drop into the 40s at night.

That storm will slowly move to the east coast late Wednesday into Thursday. That should bring a brief period of dry weather mainly on Thursday with partial sunshine returning. The temperature on Thursday will rebound to within a few degrees of 60. However, the next storm is already taking shape and will arrive in the Ohio Valley by this Friday and Saturday. This will in all likelihood bring another round of rain showers for at least the beginning of the weekend.

The early outlook for Halloween is still reasonably good! News10NBC’s Glenn Johnson wants to note that there will be some adjustments made to the forecast between now and Sunday evening. But right now we are cautiously optimistic that we will see mainly dry weather for the little ghosts and goblins.
