A November in Rochester, Western New York, and the Finger Lakes often involves stubborn clouds and chilly breezes. Today fits that bill perfectly.
A northerly wind flow off of Lake Ontario triggered a weak lake effect response in the form of a few flurries this morning. Expect those flurries to fade and give way to mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures though will be at some of their lowest levels of the month with highs in the middle 30s. A band of rain/snow will lift northward with a warm front overnight tonight before a temperature surge changes precipitation over to rain. We’re near 50 for an afternoon high Wednesday with soaking rain developing into Wednesday night. Behind that rain, leftover scattered showers will linger into Thanksgiving Thursday, but coverage will not be overwhelming with breaks expected. Plus, we’re still warm with high back in the 50s.
