First Alert Weather Update – A split weekend: sun and rain for western New York

[anvplayer video=”5149770″ station=”998131″]

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Our post-Thanksgiving weekend will be split, with full sunshine on Saturday, followed by an area of low pressure moving overhead that’ll bring periods of rain on Sunday. So, Saturday will be fine for getting your Christmas tree, travel, or just a walk with the dog. Our only complaint for Saturday will be a noticeable breeze. You’ll need to plan around several waves of rain on Sunday. The first arrives late morning into the early afternoon with a slight lull, followed by another wave of rain in the evening and into the overnight. We’ll see about a quarter to half inch of rain Sunday into early  Monday. 

We’ll trend drier on Monday, but much cooler again with a passing rain or wet snow shower. Tuesday looks good with dry weather, but we’re already tracking our next system, which will bring some wind, rain and eventually wet snow showers by Wednesday and Thursday. At this point, we don’t have any Alert Days in the forecast, but we’ll keep  track of the trends into next week.
