Weather Forecast: Rain continues this evening

Detailed forecast for Rochester, the Lakeshore & Finger Lakes








Rain showers are continuing to spread around the region this evening along a frontal boundary that is splitting our area in two. The boundary is right around I-90 with folks north of Rochester in the 40s and those in the Finger Lakes in the 70s. Scattered rain showers will continue to move through this evening with the chance for some locally heavy rainfall at times. Rain totals could exceed over an inch as this large and slow moving system continues to trek through New York State and the Northeast. A strong soil across Western NY should still be able to handle this rain.Temperatures for all will drop into the 40s tonight to make for a cold rain. This is definitely worth the jacket and umbrella for any evening activities and those gathering for Passover. As this surface low pushes northward through the region expect some lingering showers into Saturday morning. The good news is that this storm is weakening, so those showers will likely be sporadic with even some afternoon bits of sun. Another temperatures disparity is expected with 60s and even again lower 70s across the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes contrasting 40s and 50s along Rochester and 104 corridor to Lake Ontario. The dry time Saturday afternoon will be nice, but with a lurking broad surface low in the region there will still be the chance for some light scattered rain showers. That threat will continue into Sunday, but the threat will be very low and most of Easter Sunday will be dry. Temperatures for most will be in the 50s and low 60s as colder air will have engulfed the entire region by this time. Going into Monday the surface low pressure will still exert some influence on the region and rain showers will likely be across the southern half of the state with a mostly dry Western New York. There may even be some peeks of sun. Temperatures will be warmer and climb into the upper 60s. Another storm system approaches by Tuesday that will bring some scattered rain showers, but there is uncertainty as to how much this weak low will have on our region in terms of amount of rain as well as area. Regardless, it does look like the area dries out by Wednesday through the rest of next week.
