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!

Am I a Racist? Read more

Am I a Racist?

On January 6, 2019, my family became "racists" because of an accidental misspeak and a false narrative. Moving forward, I have noticed a damaging trend where so many label and make quick judgments. The year 2020, has not held back in that area..

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. 


Rochester's 7 Day Forecast

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Buffalo NY
Thu Oct 15 2020

Widespread rain will be found across the region through at least the
first half of tonight behind a cold front. Cold air behind the front
will generate some lake effect rain showers east of both lakes late
tonight and Friday. Otherwise it will be notably cooler Friday and
Saturday with temperatures not climbing out of the 50s.


Cold front has moved east of the entire area this evening. A swath
of steady rain will continue in its wake. The rain will transition
to lake effect showers late tonight for sites east of both lakes.
Rainfall will range from a tenth of an inch in many areas to a half
inch east of both lakes.

The colder airmass will support continued lake effect rain showers
east of both lakes on Friday. Otherwise it will be much cooler
with high temperatures in the 50s.

Timing of precipitation, including placement of lake effect,
accepted from Regional GEM and HRRR.


A mid-level negatively tilted shortwave trough axis will rotate
through the overall longwave pattern Friday night through Saturday.
As such, its associated weak frontal disturbance will exit the
eastern portions of the state Friday night allowing for an area of
high pressure over the Ohio Valley to push northeastward into
Western and Central New York. A brief lake response off of Lake Erie
is possible Friday night through Saturday morning as the mid-level
shortwave axis passes overhead. Model guidance vertical profiles
show lake equilibrium levels rapidly increasing to around 18k feet.
The lake response will diminish completely by Saturday afternoon as
subsidence from the aforementioned high pressure pushes overhead of
the region. Due to the passage of the cold front on Friday, a much
cooler air mass will be overhead, making Saturday the colder of the
two days this weekend. Highs on Saturday will range in the low to
mid 50s, with the cooler spots occuring along the higher terrain.

The area of high pressure will continue its northeastward
progression Saturday night, where it will be exiting the New England
coast by Sunday morning. Even with the high pressure passing
eastward, dry weather will remain throughout the day on Sunday.
Though the eastward progression of the high pressure will create a
southerly wind field which will allow for warm air to filter back
into the region. Sunday will warm to see highs in the in the mid to
low 60s, with again the cooler temperatures occurring along the
higher terrain.

The next cold front to the northwest of the region will approach the
region Sunday night. There still remains some uncertainty in regards
to timing and location of when and where this feature will stall
out. Thus, slowly increased probabilities for precipitation for the
later half of Sunday night.


An unsettled weather pattern through the work week. A surface
cyclone over northern Canada and a broad upper level trough across
CONUS will send a cold front through the area early Monday morning.
Timing and precipitation amounts will be the greatest forecast
challenge with the passage of the front, with model guidance in

A low amplitude long wave trough with generally weak disturbances
will result in an active period through Thursday with a few
different sfc lows crossing the region from the Central U.S.
Guidance is not in very good agreement with timing of low pressure
and cold frontal passages through the week after Monday, so most
days will have chance POPs for large portions of the area. Each
suite of guidance does show some breaks in shower activity for
around 18 hours or so at a time, but timing with those breaks are
also not in agreement yet, stay tuned.

Temperatures during the long term will be near average for the most
part on Monday and Tuesday, and warm to above average for Wednesday
and Thursday. Again though, timing with cold frontal passage will
determine daily max/mins.
Stay tuned.
