Weather Forecast: Brisk Winds and Falling Temperatures Today

Detailed forecast for Rochester, the Lakeshore & Finger Lakes







A cold front will move through early Thursday dropping our temperatures back into the 30s through the day. The wind will pick up a bit early today with some gusts  during the morning and early afternoon of 30-40 mph. Drier air returning will allow for a few breaks of sun before the day is out. Expect nothing more than a sprinkle or flurry. Quiet weather courtesy of an area of High pressure will allow Friday to be a pretty nice day with not much of a breeze, some sun, and temperatures that will be seasonable with highs in the middle 30s. Saturday will be the pick of the weekend with mainly dry weather and temperatures back into the mid 40s. Low pressure will then deepen and carve a path to our northwest. This "Great Lakes Gale" is potent and will bring rain by Saturday night, but more importantly, will potentially bring a round of strong and gusty winds on Sunday.  The passage of a cold front will trigger stronger gusts midday into the afternoon as a cold front moves through. It is still a ways out, but we could potentially see some damaging wind gusts, so stay tuned for updates. Then,  it turns sharply colder on Monday with that wind continuing into the morning hours, and perhaps some snow showers. Details are fuzzy, but we may see some accumulating snow early to mid next week.
