Weather Forecast: A Showery, Changeable Day Today

Detailed forecast for Rochester, the Lakeshore & Finger Lakes

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) -  

OCTOBER PRECIPITATION: 2.64"

PRECIPITATION SINCE SEPTEMBER 1: 5.45"

SEASONAL SNOW: 0.1"

TUESDAY SUNRISE: 7:34 AM

TUESDAY SUNSET: 6:15 PM

 

A cold front will cross the region today setting the stage for a changeable sky, and a great deal of variability. The front will make its way through the region by early afternoon triggering showers, and a busy breeze at times. Some of the heavier showers that form may even contain thunder or some small hail (graupel). Temperatures should make it back into the lower 50s today before dropping off in the wake of the cold front later tonight. It will be cool enough for some wet snow on our southern hilltops by tomorrow morning.  The remainder of the area will just see a few showers outside of those flakes. Temperatures will top out in the middle 40s Wednesday. The unseasonable chill deepens a bit on Thursday, and with clouds stubborn to exit, temperatures will be reluctant to budge with highs during the day not going much beyond the lower 40s. A few snow flakes on our hilltops again on Thursday will make it feel much more like we're deep into the month of November!  We're keeping an eye on the potential for a developing coastal system over the weekend and early next week. At this point there are still quite a few big questions regarding the timing, track, and depth of cold air. But, we could see a scenario where the Rochester area sees a chilly rain, a rain/snow mix south of the Thruway and some accumulating snow in the highest elevations south. This would likely be later Saturday and into Sunday. Stay tuned for updates.
