First Alert Weather Update: Wind & showers move in overnight
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – After record breaking warmth across the area on Saturday, a cold front will put an end to our September-like air. Winds will ramp up a bit ahead of that cold front, with some gusts 40-45 mph for a few hours tonight, mainly in the higher terrain of the Finger Lakes. A Wind Advisory is posted for Monroe, Genesee, Wyoming, Livingston, Ontario and Yates Counties through midnight. The cold front itself will come in with a period of gusty showers, perhaps a rumble of thunder. While most of this rain will be out of here by sunrise Sunday, a few showers will likely linger into the start of the day. We’ll begin to see some clearing in the sky by the afternoon, and highs will top out in the lower half of the 60s. So, while the 2nd half of the weekend won’t be nearly as warm as the first, we’ll still remain warmer than average.
We’re in for a real treat through the first half of next week, with nothing but sunshine Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by a slight increase in clouds on Thursday. We’ll finally start to see this pattern breaking down by Friday, with the arrival of a cold front, followed by much cooler, and much more seasonable air. In fact, we’ll likely drop below average temperatures by next weekend, with the possibility of a few snowflakes at times.
