Weather Forecast: Rain, Storms Ahead of Tuesday's Cold Front

Detailed forecast for Rochester, the Lakeshore & Finger Lakes







Storms associated with the approaching cold front will continue at varying intensities through midnight and just after. We will lose the big heating of the day as the sun goes down, but there will still be some instability to help fuel some stronger storms will locally heavy rain and lightning, and some strong wind gusts. The cold front moves through early Tuesday morning, with plenty of tropical moisture early, still making it feel quite uncomfortable. The last of the rain and storms will shift east into central NY by mid-morning, with dry weather and a clearing sky returning locally. We will also feel much more comfortable air returning later Tuesday and that will stick around into the middle part of the week, before more heat and  humidity build back in late week and the weekend. The weekend will also turn a bit more unsettled with a slow moving storm system to our west. The storm will be far enough west to avoid a weekend washout, but close enough to it to have to keep a few showers or a storm in the forecast both weekend days, ramping up later Saturday.
