A Refreshing Monday on Tap!

Written by John DiPasquale:

Record rains for yesterday, August 5th here in Rochester, & with yesterday's soaking from the strong to severe storms the last 11 or 12 days have entailed a little over 4" of rain!!  For this reason, come Thursday we should not be considered in a moderate drought.  If so, I'll be shocked!  Thank for the rains Mother Nature! 

The pre-frontal trough & cold front responsible for the rains yesterday have shifted well to the east, & all we had to deal with for a little while today were some strato-cumulus clouds that are now quickly evaporating & moving off to the south & east.  So the rest of today looks sweet & comfy! 

High pressure will provide a clear sky & comfortably cool temps tonight, & help us warm into the mid 80s Tuesday afternoon with more sun.  Humidity levels will remain in check on Tuesday too.

A cold front will drift through later Wednesday/Wednesday night with a few scattered showers & storms possible, but much of the day looks dry, very warm & muggy with highs between 85 & 90. 

Behind Wednesday's cold front, it will turn much cooler & probably eventually damp too by weeks end.  Even the upcoming weekend looks cooler than average!  Here come the 70s!  Stay tuned.

  1. It is amazing how Rochester picked up 1.70 inches of ran while everyone around us except Watertown received so much less.
