First Alert Weather: Record warmth a possibility this weekend

ROCHESTER, N.Y. Another unseasonably warm stretch of fall air is underway.

Highs (away from Lake Ontario) made it well into the 60s on Thursday, and we’re going up from there. Any fog hugging the lakeshore in Orleans County will linger into the first part of the overnight before lifting northward by morning.

Friday should be another dry and warm day, with highs near 70 with a mix of clouds and sun. Saturday will be the warmest day. In fact, Saturday’s record high is in jeopardy. The record stands at 75 degrees from 2015, and there’s a good chance we’ll make it there, thanks to a warm southerly wind.

Clouds will likely win out, but we should be staying dry. A period of rain moves in Saturday night into early Sunday morning, followed by some clearing and dry weather the rest of Sunday. So, in total, we’ll see dry weather for about 90% of the daylight hours this weekend.

Then we’ll see another stretch of dry weather through the majority of next week, with temperatures holding a bit above average in the 60s before our next system brings some rain and much cooler, more seasonable fall air by next weekend.
