First Alert Weather: Giving thanks for pleasant weather for the holiday
ROCHESTER, N.Y. The month of November usually produces our first significant snowfalls of the season and Rochester will see an average of over eight inches of snow.
Even though the Buffalo area had a crippling snowstorm this past week, Rochester is still running below normal for monthly snow. That is likely to continue with no signs of any significant winter weather through the end of the month. In fact, this Thanksgiving day will bring some of the warmest weather of the week!
If you are traveling for the holiday or you have guests coming into town it appears the weather will cooperate. Tonight will bring clear skies at times with the temperature falling through the 30s. Eventually, the low temperature will be near 28 degrees by morning.
Thanksgiving day will feature bright sunshine in the morning, then turning hazy for the afternoon. It will be unseasonably mild with the high temperature in the lower 50s. Thanksgiving night the clouds will be increasing with the chance of a few light showers possible by morning.
The low temperature is in the middle to upper 30s. Friday will not be a washout, but a few light rain showers are possible. It will turn breezy and cooler as the temperature falls through the 40s.
High pressure builds in again for Saturday. That means we get a return to some sunshine and a high temperature near 50 degrees. Another low-pressure system will be cutting through the Great Lakes on Sunday.
This will increase the likelihood of some steadier rain to finish up the weekend. The temperature on Sunday will again be near 50 degrees. Stay tuned to News10NBC First Alert for updates on the forecast.
