Now that we’re into the new year with fairly new wintry scenery and a colder, more seasonable weather pattern we can look back at the final statistics and see how warm and wet December really was.

An active week ahead as we approach the holidays

As we move through the second half of December with Christmas just ahead of us, our weather pattern looks to stay “active”, but also mostly mild which means liquid precipitation and even ice at times to go with a couple of shots at actually measuring some snow. The jet stream aloft is in a zonal […]

Mild to start November, but cooler days aren’t far off

Once again our weather has swung to the milder side of the pendulum and things are bright, quiet, and balmy for November standards. The changes arrived over Halloween weekend with a shift in the upper level pattern as warmer air once again began to blow northward, staving off the typical chill of late fall. The […]

Some mild temps and much needed rain are expected this week

With few exceptions, this month of October has been extremely comfortable while the foliage has been bright and long-lasting in most cases and it looks like this type of weather will continue for the majority of the upcoming week even as we move in November. Mild air continues to make for a pleasant scenario as […]

The chill of autumn is back

After a relatively short spell of unseasonably warm, summer-like weather over the weekend, cooler, more October-like weather is back. The changeover was rather abrupt as the warm southwest winds we felt most of the weekend swung around to the west with the passage of a strong cold front from the west very early Monday morning […]

Shower chances return to the area for a few days

It’s strange how this pattern keeps repeating itself, but for the past several years we’ve had a wet spring and early summer with no need to irrigate the lawns and fields, but by late July and for most of August we’re reaching for the sprinklers and actually hoping for rain. Over the past month and […]

The mild spell continues, but cooler days aren’t far off

It’s been almost a full week since our last cool snap ended with a coating of wet snow just before a surge of milder air over the weekend brought us back into spring mode. Now, as we approach the tail end of the work week, a week that has seen us enjoy nothing but 60 to 70 […]

Warm and dry for a while with changes ahead for the weekend

Coming out of what turned out to be a rather dreary and damp stretch of chilly weather, we were all hoping for not only a warm up, but also a decent respite from rain and clouds and certainly the weather over the weekend we enjoyed was just what anyone could have hoped for in early April. […]

Messy Outlook In Play For Tuesday/Wednesday

We saw large snow accumulations all across our area on Sunday night and we have another chance for some wintry precipitation coming on Tuesday night. A low pressure system tracking eastward across the Great Plains has a katafront (a front with precipitation preceding it) associated with it and that is bringing rain and wintry mix […]

Winter returns with heavy snow in the area; more snow is possible this week

We waited the entire winter in Rochester and across much of the local area for a large dumping of snow and finally, in the first weekend of spring, we got it! The 7.9 inches of snow measured at the Rochester International Airport is almost twice the previous high seasonal one-day snowfall of 3.9 inches. It […]
