A Few Nice Days Before...More Rain

Written by:  Stacey Pensgen

After a so-so weekend, the next 24-36 hours will be quite nice, although remaining cool. Temperatures Monday top out in the lower 70s, while Tuesday should climb back into the mid and upper 70s with dry weather. After that, our weather pattern returns to a more "summery" one, complete with off and on rain and storms, and hey...some 80s! Heat from out west will slowly ooze closer to us by week's end, but true ridging won't build in, holding our highs just a few degrees above average. Sorry big time heat lovers, no 90s in the next week. We may get a surge of warmer air by late weekend into early next week before another shot of cooler air. Will this pattern last into September? We can really only wait and see.


  1. The Canada Fall forecast from Accuweather came out today. It explicitly mentions eastern Canada from Windsor up through Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, so extrapolating their outlook down to our region can give us a basic idea of what we would expect here should this forecast verify. They are pegged for a slightly cooler than average September followed by above average for October, then below average for November. Precipitation is expected to be below average for the first half of the season before a more active storm track for the region (i.e. wetter than normal) sets up in the second half, with early season snowfall possible during November. Here is a link to the forecast graphics and in-depth summary:

    And as always, since this is only one forecast and it applies to an entire season it should not be viewed as a set-in-stone scenario.

      They called it a forecast and not an outlook? Typical AccuNever.

  2. WROC weather has the gall to call themselves most accurate forecast.Did they not forecast heavy rain and thunderstorms for today?Not only are they totally wrong,they didn't even come close to being right.Not that any of the other local forecasters were any better.And what's up with putting up a seven day forecast when you couldn't even get it right today?

    1. I agree,the rochester weather men and women too are the worst!
