ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Unless you’re looking for a fresh blanket of snow this weekend, there’s a good chance you’re going to love our weather. We start Saturday off with some clouds, and perhaps a lingering lake snow shower, but that will be short-lived. A sprawling area of high pressure will be building in over the Great Lakes, clearing out skies out and leading to some nice afternoon sun on Saturday. We’ll keep much of that around on Sunday, with some high clouds spreading north from a system well to our south. Saturday will be the chillier weekend day with daytime highs in the 30s, then jumping well into the 40s on Sunday. 

Mild air will be the theme for the next week or two across the Great Lakes and Northeast, with warmer-than-average temperatures through much of next week. In fact, highs may be pushing 60 by Wednesday or Thursday of next week, before winter briefly makes a return late next week following a strong cold front.

Overall, we see no real sign of winter (both sustained cold and snow) until perhaps the end of the month.
