A busy week of local, regional and even NATIONAL media interviews following filing of lawsuit against Mayor Lovely Warren...


A week after "the calamity" that derailed my nearly 20 year career in television meteorology, on January 15th 2019, my wife and I decided I should get back to doing what I love, THE WEATHER... and just like that, BOOM, #WxLIVE came alive!

I'm so thrilled to be able to continue to share my love for weather with so many great Rochesterians and Western New Yorkers... and the best part is that I get to do it with my truely lovely bride of 17 years by my side. 

In the heart of what we do, you'll find passion for weather, faith and community as #AKALisaRay and myself LIVE stream the program across multiple social media platforms including Facebook and YouTube. In addition to daily radar and forecast updates for Rochester and Western New York, you'll get to experience weather and family entertainment all at the same time... #Weathertainment!

The Bigger Storm

My dear friends helped me create this Statue of Liberty costume... WxLive had received the highest numbers of views we have seen since "the calamity", and I LOVE to celebrate all victories, small and large. I also LOVE to CELEBRATE liberty, in general. Afterall, Freedom is a gift, given to all of us to enjoy.

As we go into Week 11 and Memorial Day, I ask that we go into this VERY LONG pause, and take a deeper look. Ready? "Ouch" it stings, but here it goes... 




Rochester's 7 Day Forecast


Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Buffalo NY Tue Jul 7 2020

.SYNOPSIS... Heat and humidity will build through the rest of the week, peaking on Thursday and Friday. The majority of the time will be dry, although a few widely scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible each afternoon and evening mainly inland from the lakes. A weak cold front will arrive Saturday and bring a better chance of showers and thunderstorms, and will also bring somewhat cooler temperatures to the region by Sunday.

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/... Flat ridging to our west will continue to pump uncomfortably warm and increasingly humid air into the region. Hot across the lake plains with heat indices Wednesday in the mid to upper 90s.

Widely scattered thunderstorms into early this evening from Southern Tier to east of Rochester and over the North Country. On Wednesday, there will be slightly better chance of showers and thunderstorms with an elevated frontal passage. Timing of these will be earlier than last couple days though, occurring from morning into mid afternoon.

.SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/...Dangerously High Apparent Temperatures Thursday and Friday... A semblance of a Rex block over the eastern U.S. will continue to support H85 temps that will hover near 20c. This will translate into daily highs Thursday and Friday in the 90s across the lake plains where high humidity will boost the apparent temps to between 95 and 100. Heat Advisories will remain in effect across the Lake Plains and into the Finger Lakes region.

Meanwhile...little if any rainfall anticipated. Meager pops highest on Friday. ECMWF guidance accepted.

.LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/... A mid-level trough will slowly approach the region Saturday before gradually weakening or moving off to the northeast through early next week. The best chance for rain will be Saturday when the axis of the mid-level and surface trough enter western New York. However most model guidance keeps deeper/tropical moisture to our east with this system tracking into New England. So while this system is likely to provide some drought relief, it will be far from a drought- buster with amounts in the quarter inch ballpark.

After this, weak troughing aloft will support mainly scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms Sunday through Monday. Temperatures will be notably cooler than this week, but still near to slightly above normal with highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s.

Stay tuned.
