Looks Wet Tonight into Tuesday

Written by John DiPasquale:

It was a cool, but fantastic weekend!  Hope you got out to enjoy it.  Unfortunately, some rain is on the way, & it could be heavy at times tonight into Tuesday.  An area of low pressure, while weak, moisture laden will scoot by just to the west & provide a good soaking with about 1 to 2+ inches of rain to the region over the late today through Tuesday.  These rainfall amounts, with a few spots picking up even more where t-storms occur, could very well experience some flooding, especially in low lying, flood prone areas near bodies of water.  Late Tuesday, the rain should clear out of here behind a cold front, which will cool us off slowly, but surely moving through the remainder of the week, as the rain producing storm intensifies to the northeast of the area. 

On Wednesday, there should be a scattering of showers/storm redeveloping, especially during the afternoon, & temp readings will likely be in the low to mid 60s.

By Thursday, it will be blustery & cool with a few passing showers possible, along with intervals of sun.  Highs on Thursday will likely not even get out of the 50s. 

Better weather should develop here for Friday into at least part of the Mother's Day weekend & kick off of Lilac Festival in Rochester.  Stay tuned for updates throughout the week.

Have a nice start to the week WNY!

  1. Hello Everyone,

    Well, we picked up some fairly significant rains over the last 24 hours, but it was on the low end of things due to the lack of convection, which is a good thing, otw there may have been some flash flooding in spots where the storms occurred. About a half to inch or so of rain fell across the region since late Monday, & now we are slowly drying out this afternoon, & should get some rays of sun out before today is over from west to east!

    Areas of fog will likely develop tonight & give way to an ok day Wednesday. An upper level low & surface trough will begin to push in Wednesday, & more so Thursday, which should trigger a few scattered showers & storms, primarily during the late morning through early evening hours. Highs will be well into the 60s Wednesday, & upper 50s to around 60 Thursday with a cool, gusty breeze.

    Friday into much of the weekend still looking very nice. However, there may be a little frost developing early Friday & again early Saturday in spots, especially south of the Thruway. Stay tuned.

    Have a great day bloggers!
