First Alert Forecast: A Soggy End to Holiday Weekend
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Thus far the wet weather has been very limited, but that is about to change. This is not good news for the remainder of Labor Day holiday weekend.
The weather features that will produce this wet weather is a front that has become nearly stationary across Western New York and low pressure which will continue to move along that front. This slow moving weather element could not have had any worse timing as the bulk of the rain will fall tonight into Labor Day.
Tonight look for occasional rain to develop all across the Rochester area. There could be some patchy light fog south of Rochester. The low temperature will be in the lower 60s. Occasional showers will be likely, with a high probability of wet weather into early Monday afternoon. The rain should taper off to sprinkles during the remainder of the day, but the mainly gray, damp and cool weather will continue. The high temperature will only be in the upper 60s. Tuesday there could be a few sprinkles for the morning, then skies will brighten for the afternoon. The mercury will rise into the lower 70s.
Weather looks good for the start of the school year. We are expecting lots of sunshine and gradually warmer temperatures for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The temperature will rise through the 70s into the 80s by the end of the week.
