The first week of August may feature a little more rain for us

While generally unseasonably cool temperatures for the month of July in 2014 made headlines, it was the rainfall that was a bit more off the mark statistically. We were more than four degrees cooler than normal for high temperatures for July in Rochester which is certainly noteworthy, but not record-setting by any means. We measured less than half the normal amount of rainfall for […]

Our mild stretch continues and may possibly go on for a while

After nearly two weeks of warmer than normal temperatures in Rochester, things are beginning to feel just a little more seasonably mild as we work our way through the first week of June. In other words, high temperatures in the 70s are becoming more common in the area, a departure from the low to mid […]

A Slow Warming Trend Ahead, Possibly Good Viewing Weather For Comet ISON

Although our weather right now seems prematurely cold and wintry, especially with the strong winds from the north, our weather is dry and favorable for traveling across the our region as we approach the all-important Thanksgiving Day holiday weekend.  The good news is we’ll stick with a more or less dry pattern right though the […]

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 […]

Up until the last couple of days, we’ve been enjoying some sensational fall weather with abundant sunshine and very comfortable temperatures.  Even the rainfall we’d been missing for a few months has been showing up a little more frequently in October.  However, our weather pattern is shifting from a warmer than normal regime to a […]

September Summary; A Brief Look Ahead

If it seemed like September was unusually warm in our area, you’re right.  Our mean temperature was almost four full degrees warmer than the 30 year climate average of 60.4 degrees, placing us in the top ten warmest Septembers in recorded history for the city of Rochester.  We tied 1939 and 1919 for number 8 […]

Our Cool Trend Continues

With more than a week of an unseasonably cool weather pattern under our belts, it looks like there will be a slight warm up in some of the coming days, but still nothing that might be considered typical late summer weather for our standards.  We’re going to to get rid of the 60s and lower […]

Looking Back at May 2013

So far June has been a little kinder to us than May as each day has featured at least a decent window of sunshine and even the rain we’ve seen has been fairly light.  May, on the other hand, certainly did feature a ridiculous amount of rainfall and even quite a dumping of snow!  Looking back at […]

A Memorable Month So Far

What a crazy May it’s been!  Records have been falling left and right both in terms of temperatures and precipitation this month and our stormy pattern continues even as we wrap up May and move into June this weekend.  A large storm system to our west has been keeping things warmer, more humid, and rather […]

Cold Weather Lingers; Some Records May Fall

Our unbelievable stretch of cold, wet, and wintry weather persists as we head into the third weekend of April.  Once again we’re dealing with a thin coating of snow with snowflakes flying around and raw northwest winds that are keeping wind chill indices in the teens and 20s.  For the 9th time in 19 days […]
