ROCHESTER, NY (WROC) – Clear skies mean a gem of a day as temperatures climb into the upper 30s and lower 40s. High pressure wins out and you can expect more melting of the snowpack through this afternoon.

Surface high pressure meanders into the Atlantic Ocean Tuesday night into Wednesday, establishing a warm southwest wind into the Great Lakes. That means more sunshine Wednesday and highs spiking to 50° by the afternoon. Winds ramp up Thursday and temperatures again get well into the 40s ahead of rain at some point. This is along a cold front, but longer range models are struggling to align on what happens next. Regardless, expect scattered showers both Friday and Saturday with a general cool down going into the weekend.

There could be some lake effect with this cold air Saturday, but it shouldn’t amount to much. Yet another warmup will be possible by the middle of next week.
