ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — If you've been a fan of the recent warmth over the last few days, you won't love the weekend forecast.

After spending the last two days in the 60s, we'll drop back into the upper 30s to start Saturday, then only climb into the lower 40s for highs, following the passage of a moisture-starved cold front. That means we won't see much (or any) precipitation from this, but we'll feel the difference. 


Sunday starts off dry and chilly, with temperatures in the upper 20s to near 30. Moisture moves in from the south around lunchtime or early afternoon, and will likely start off as some wet snow. We'll see a brief period (a few hours) of wet snow, that may accumulate an inch or two on grassy surfaces, especially west of Rochester. Any accumulation shouldn't last long, as the snow is falling during the day while the sun is up, and temperatures should climb just enough to see a changeover to a cold rain.

Any moisture pulls out of the region by Monday morning, with some clearing into the afternoon.

Tuesday is dry and mostly cloudy but chilly with highs in the 30s.

Another wave of low pressure will spread some rain back into the area again on Wednesday, but it still looks like this will move out again by Thursday. This should leave us with a dry and seasonable Thanksgiving, with highs near 50.
