What a difference a day makes!! The third warmest January day ever recorded in Rochester when the record of 69° was hit at about 1 Sunday afternoon has been replaced, as expected, by more typical January air to begin the week. At noon temperatures were in the low to mid 30s, which is for most about 25 to 35 degrees colder than we were this time yesterday!! Wow! Today will be quiet with a glimmer of sun here & there to finish out the day, but for the most part clouds should hang tough.
After some clearing occurs tonight, we should see some sun on our Tuesday with a seasonable chill. Temps will warm to near 40 Wednesday with a blustery breeze developing and a few flurries possibly developing. An Arctic front will squeak through late Wednesday night/early Thursday providing a taste of arctic air for Thursday into the start of Friday with highs likely to be between 20 & 25 Thursday & starting the day in the teens Friday before we moderate in advance of a developing storm over the West-Central Great Lakes later Friday & especially Saturday. Sunday at this early vantage point appears to be a transition day, & much of next week could turn VERY, VERY COLD!!! We'll see...Stay tuned for updates through the week.
Have a good one all!
