Warm air moving in ahead of our next weather maker will cause temperatures to rise slowly through the overnight putting us in the high 20s and low 30s by Sunday morning.
Winds will start gusting between 20-30 mph at times with the highest gusts expected across the Niagara Frontier west of Rochester. This will not only cause temperatures to increase throughout the night, but it will also keep wind chills in the 20s and 30s throughout the day. Despite all of this highs will be able to climb into the low to mid 40s as warmer air takes over ahead of a cold front arriving late Sunday afternoon. Most of the day is dry with mostly cloudy skies before our weak system slides in from the northwest. This will bring a few brief rain mixed with snow showers to the region by dinner time before dry air takes over into Monday. Coverage won’t be very widespread, and will likely lean more on the rain side of things initially as colder air doesn’t settle in until the morning.
High pressure moves in again providing a quiet start to the new week with temperatures starting in the mid 20s behind the front, and highs much more seasonable in the mid 30s under mostly cloudy skies.
Tuesday another passing system swings through with highs in the mid 40s, and we’ll see a mainly rain-type event through the evening. There could be a few flakes that mix in depending on how much cold air moves in behind the system, but don’t expect much in the way of snow.
Wednesday could have some lingering showers in the morning with highs in the 40s. The next big system could be Thursday into Friday, but any storm that far out is taken with a grain of salt so check back often for updates on the forecast. If one thing is for sure, it’s that this week will contain a much milder feel with several days spent in the 40s and a few of those flirting with 50° at times.
