ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — It’s a windy start as a cold front begins it’s trek south throughout Thursday. We’ll see occasional gusts to 20-30mph through most of the morning and afternoon before winds quiet down behind the front after sunset today. Ahead of it at least most of us start out mild into the upper 30s this morning, do expect a much colder night though with lows falling off to the 20s. Along the front late tonight and into Friday some brief rain, and then snow showers are on the table but it will be minimal since there is very little moisture associated with this one.

Very early Friday morning we will be peppered with a few lake effect snow showers as cool Canadian air comes streaming out of the north. These will end quickly nearer to sunrise and the rest of the day will likely be dominated by a fresh layer of overcast skies. Highs will only take a small hit behind the front with most into the upper 30s.

Through the weekend, a strong Canadian high will move into place bringing loads of dry air to all levels of the atmosphere. What that means for us is finally a break in the clouds for at least a few days. Saturday and Sunday should both feature some solid sunshine with highs continuing to hold into the upper 30s. Nice enough to get outside with a jacket.

Longer term, dry weather for the most part looks to hold on for most of next week. Some parts of our current pattern remain uncertain, particularly our temperatures there is evidence another warm-up could be on the way. But there also lies the chance of another brief cool down too. Right now, focus on this weekend and we’ll focus on the forecast for next week.
