A stormy, humid weekend may be ahead of us

After a relatively quiet work week, it looks like our weekend is looking a bit stormy and possibly rather soggy. A storm system from the west is going to work to pull in extra moisture ahead of its arrival over the next couple of days, setting us up for some abundant and even, in some cases, excessive […]

Summery, Stormy Days Ahead

As we enjoy the benefits of dry, Canadian high pressure that include sunny skies, low humidity, and comfortable temperatures, we know that as mid and even late June approach on the calendar, heat, humidity, and some early summer thunderstorms can’t be too far off. In fact, the pattern will turn on a dime this weekend […]

A few rain chances on the way this week and weekend which is a good thing

After a rather wet start to spring that included the fifth wettest April in Rochester history, we’re actually finding ourselves hoping for some rain as we approach the middle portion of June. At one point in May we had a surplus of more than three inches for spring 2014, but since the second week of […]

Rain and Snow Totals

November can be a vastly different month from one year to the next.  We’ve enjoyed a few fairly mild ones in recent years that have featured 50s and 60s for highs and we’ve certainly had a few colder ones as well where frequent doses of snow have made it seem more like a winter month than […]

A Tale of Two Octobers

It’s certainly been an interesting October so far.  We started the month coming off a September that was mostly bright and mild, but rather dry. In fact, the first couple of weeks were very September-like with highs mainly in the 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s.  That’s pretty easy to take for October, a […]

Drought Conditions Continue, But Some Rain Chances May Be Ahead

We’ve been enjoying some gorgeous, tranquil fall weather over the past few days and, from the looks of things, this dry pattern will continue through the next few days. Unfortunately, while we certainly appreciate pleasant, sunny weather this time of the year, we really do need some rainfall as our deficit for this month now stands […]

A Worsening Drought Across The Region

Our dry weather pattern continues as bright sunshine continues to dominate our sky rather than rain clouds this week.  This morning’s light rain did very little to improve our drought situation as rainfall totals were minuscule in the few locations that experienced the showers.  The latest Drought Monitor places the majority of our area in […]

Abnormally Dry Conditions

Abnormally Dry Conditions

It seems absurd and kind of boggles the mind, but who would have thought a couple of months ago given the insanely wet winter and spring this year that we’d find ourselves officially listed on the U.S. Drought Monitor as “abnormally dry?”  That is the situation that the majority of our viewing area finds itself […]
