First Alert Weather: Colder changes begin Saturday

ROCHESTER, N.Y. A dry start to our Saturday as the heaviest rain from yesterday has moved well off towards the east.

Although our rain has moved east we are not done tracking changes for our region locally. Moving forward through today, we will begin to feel the colder air settle in across our region. Most of today though will be quiet.

For the Veteran’s Day Parade, we expect mostly cloudy skies with temperatures near 50 degrees. Make sure you bring a heavier jacket though as breezy conditions will make it feel a little cooler outside.

The breezy conditions will continue through today and knock our temperatures into the mid and upper 40s this afternoon. We will see a chance for a few showers late in the day, but heavy rain is not expected. This shower activity will help kick in the lake effect machine and bring us a good shot of colder air.

A few lake effect rain and snow showers will be expected tonight through Monday morning. We could see some minor accumulations in the higher elevations south of Lake Ontario, but no issues are expected. We will also turn even colder with highs Sunday afternoon only near 40 degrees.

The windy conditions will also continue, which means it will feel colder with wind chills in the 30s through Sunday. That cold weather will stick with us through this week as highs struggle to reach the mid-40s.
