Seems like a long time ago when Lovely had no scandals, cold and snow were common in Rochester. The first 9 days of the month were by and large brutally cold and snowy. More recently, Rochester has been mild with temperatures about 11 degrees above normal since last Friday. Old Man Winter has plans for us beginning the second half of the weekend and into the next week.
Colder air will be sliding South from Central Canada as a strong Pacific ridge bulges North toward Alaska. This will dump all the Arctic air into the U.S. again the final 7-10 days of the month. I don't expect this cold snap to be quite as fierce as the last one but temperatures between 10-20 below average will be common as well as some snow.
Plenty of Winter left...hang in there!
