Weather forecast: Several hours of showers today

The leaves look fantastic. Learn how they change here.

A front stalling out over Western New York will serve as a conduit upon which waves of Low pressure will travel. The bulk of the rain showers along a broad cold front will move in Monday morning for the commute. 

Expect off and on “umbrella-worthy” rain through much of the day with temperatures remaining steady in the lower 50s. Scattered showers linger along the near-stationary front overnight into Tuesday. Some high pressure across the Great Lakes starts to work its way into southern Canada and move the front into the Atlantic. The day will finish with sunshine, but temperatures will remain in the 50s. 

A quickly moving system along the jet stream moves in Wednesday to break the stagnant temperatures. Expect afternoon highs to jump up into the upper 60s to near 70° with scattered rain showers through the day. Colder air to the north briefly moves back over Western New York overnight and Thursday is back into the 50s. Leave it to Mother Nature to send us right back into the 70s by Friday with as a large storm system gathers across the Upper Midwest. It may be the best day of the week with mostly sunny skies and the warm breeze.

Rain showers with this system will probably move through Saturday replaced by sun on Sunday and potentially another up and down week to finish October.
