First Alert Forecast: Time Is Running Out For the Nice Weather
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – The month of November usually means a drastic reduction in the amount of sunshine. However, this November has been much different for Western New York. So far the bright sunshine has been more the rule than the exception. High pressure will bring another two days of clear skies and gradually warmer weather. But the recommendation is to get out and enjoy the pleasant conditions because we have some big changes arriving by the weekend.
Tonight will feature clear, moonlit skies. A chilly night is expected as the temperature will fall into the lower 30s lake side and into the upper 20s south of Rochester. Look for bright sunshine during the entire day on Wednesday. And after a chilly start, the mercury will rise into the lower 60s. Thursday will bring more sunshine and even warmer temperatures. The high temperature should be near 70 degrees.
Unfortunately the inclement weather will begin to arrive on Friday. Veterans Day should be mainly dry for the morning, but showers will arrive later in the afternoon. This will eventually turn to steady and maybe a heavy rain for Friday night. This rain will be the remnants of Hurricane Nicole. However, the rain will not last as showers will taper for early Saturday morning. But the day will turn windy and much cooler as the temperature will fall through the 40s. Then it is back to some true November conditions with mixed lake effect precipitation for Sunday and Monday. You can expect a gusty wind with passing rain and wet snow showers. Temperatures will be mainly in the 30s.
