Weather forecast: A lot like Spring today

The Rochester Airport unofficially hit 48° for a high Sunday, so that makes it the warmest we’ve been since January 14. This is just a teaser though as we have a major blast of cold coming to finish the month.

Springlike weather is in store for your day today with sunshine this morning giving way to increasing clouds. Temperatures will top out close to 50! 

The Great Plains low will start to gather momentum Tuesday and advance toward the Great Lakes. This storm will extend a warm front northward and a thick cloud cover overhead will mark a slowing of diurnal temperature change. The day will remain in the 30s with light rain showers for most with a slight chance for some freezing drizzle. This storm system really ramps up into Wednesday and drives the warm front well north. This will surge warmer air into the region and temperatures spike by mid-day Wednesday to around 50° with scattered rain showers. This does not last long as cold air quickly rushes in behind it and rapidly drops temperatures into the 30s and 20s Thursday. Timing on this cold will matter for precipitation type. If it happens while there is still moisture around we could see a transition to snow showers. If it gets pushed further into Thursday than those snow showers will be just scattered lake-effect snow showers that should have minor impacts.
