ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Thursday was another day warmer than average, but that streak is coming to an end.

Showers will start around midnight, with a narrow ribbon of heavier rain, maybe a rumble as a cold front sweeps through before sunrise. Winds will be gusty out of the south, with peak gusts near 40 in the higher terrain south. It’ll be a breezy/windy night for everybody, but the wind shouldn’t be enough to cause any issues. It will, however, help to bring down the leaves that are still clinging to the trees.

Friday will still be on the milder side, at least to start, as it'll take a few hours before the colder air filters in. Morning rain ends quickly and we'll see some nice sunshine returning. Temperatures should hit the mid-50s before falling back into the 40s by evening. We've been talking about a weekend of mixed rain and wet snow showers, and that remains in the forecast. It'll certainly feel more like typical November, with lows in the 30s, highs in the lower 40s, a brisk wind and those mixed lake showers. But, any accumulation should be confined to the higher elevations of the Finger Lakes and Southern Tier. This may include a coating in the Bristol Hills. A fast-moving clipper will bring a better chance for some snow showers later on Sunday, but temperatures will be just marginal for snow, and too warm for any area-wide accumulation. Still, expect the flakes to fly this weekend.

Next week: We'll keep the cooler than average theme going into the first half of next week, with highs in the lower 40s on Monday and Tuesday, with some wet flakes continuing. But, much like the weekend, most won't see any accumulation. Wednesday turns briefly milder with highs making their way back into the 50s.
