Widespread rain will taper to scattered showers by mid-morning and then spotty showers will continue into the afternoon. Once the steady rain moves east, a few breaks in the cloud cover will develop and this will allow temperatures to soar into the upper 50s and low 60s by early afternoon. The old record for Rochester today is 52° so we should easily shatter that.
Gusty winds will also continue, especially across the hills to the south of Rochester where gusts could approach 50 mph at times. A cold front will sweep through by late afternoon with falling temperatures behind it.
Thursday and Friday will be much colder days with highs in the mid to upper 30s but these numbers will still be a few degrees above average. Outside of a few snow showers, we will see mainly dry weather the rest of the week.
Another cold front approaches this weekend bringing scattered snow showers Saturday night and a shot of even colder air for Sunday with highs only in the 20s.
