ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Enjoy the "boring" weather while we have it! Things will become a bit more active starting Thursday. A storm system developing and moving through the Great Lakes will initially help to bump our temperatures back to average, in the upper 40s.

Any rain should hold off on Thursday until the later evening hours, and we should see the sky brighten, at least for a few hours! A strong cold front moves in overnight, dropping our temperatures from the lower 50s after midnight, into the 30s during the day on Friday. Winds will whip up out of the west/northwest, and gust 35-45 mph at times on Friday.


This wind direction will also create some issues lakeside, especially for eastern Monroe and Wayne counties on Friday. A Lakeshore Flood Watch is posted for Wayne county for Friday morning through the evening.

Another fast moving system may impact us over the weekend, with a rain/snow/wintry mix late Saturday (mainly Saturday night), and move out Sunday morning. 

Looking a head to Thanksgiving week: we still expect a nice little warm up leading up to the holiday, but depending on the timing of a cold front, we could see a rain to snow mix for the busy travel day on Wednesday. Stay tuned as we update the forecast!
