ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Our temperatures will remain above average through mid-week, followed by a return to closer to average temperatures late week.

This means we will continue to see some melting and thawing through Wednesday. We'll see a mostly cloudy sky overnight, with temperatures dropping toward the freezing point, and a few rogue snow showers, but no accumulation is expected. Another fast moving, minor disturbance will move through on Tuesday, bringing a mix of rain and wet snow showers back to the area.

Once again, temperatures at the surface will rise into the upper 30s, meaning we'll see little to no accumulation on Tuesday. Winds will be breezy again, with a southwesterly wind gusting to 30-35 mph at times.

Wednesday looks to be our mildest day of the week, and mildest in quite some time, as highs will rise into the mid to upper 40s. This will come with a gusty wind, mainly during the afternoon and evening, with some gusts to 40 mph, primarily west of Rochester. Some rain showers will return by evening.

This is associated with a cold front, that will drop our temperatures back toward the freezing point again by Thursday and Friday. But, this drop in temperature shouldn't be accompanied by any accumulating snow.
