Bills Gameday Recap: Week 3 vs. Rams

Weather forecast: Another “summer sensation” today

The warmth we enjoyed over the weekend will linger today as we start the work week. Temperatures will make their way into the lower 80s.  Clouds will mix with a few breaks of sunshine. A shower or two is possible later into the afternoon.

Expect yet another warm night tonight with clouds increasing ahead of a cold front that arrives Tuesday. 

The slow moving nature of the front will mean clouds, and some showers during the day Tuesday. Temperatures will still flirt with 70 degrees for highs. Much of the afternoon will be in the 60s.

Cold air will take its time pouring over the region Tuesday and temperatures will be on a slow, but constant decline into Wednesday and Thursday. A large upper-level trough in the jet will park over the Great Lakes and Northeast to keep cold temperatures, some 5-15° below normal from Thursday through Sunday. This opens the door for lake-effect clouds and rain sputtering off and on through this time period. It will not be the prettiest stretch Rochester has ever seen, but the leaves should really start to pop through this period. Also make sure your leaf blower is tuned up.
