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!

Rochester's 7 Day Forecast

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Buffalo NY
733 PM EDT Thu Sep 3 2020

A cold front will cross the region tonight with a brief period of
scattered showers. Much cooler and breezy conditions will arrive
Friday and Saturday behind the cold front. The cool weather will
last through the weekend before a significant warming trend arrives
early next week.


A weak bubble of high pressure will continue to provide a brief
window of mainly clear skies through much of the evening hours, with
clear skies sandwiched between a frontal wave over PA and the Mid
Atlantic, and an approaching cold front over southern Ontario.

High pressure`s influence will be fleeting, however, as a surface
cold front is already slicing through southern Ontario and advancing
southeastward. Convection is ongoing along the front with ample
instability and bulk shear present in its current environment. As it
heads toward our region, forcing for the front will peel northward
toward Hudson Bay, yielding far lower shear and weakening forcing
along the trailing front. Likewise, due to its timing during the
diurnal cycle, instability will be lacking along the front as it
enters western New York toward midnight. Thus, while there will be
remnant showers along the front as it enters the region,
thunderstorms will be lacking. Even shower activity will start to
wane along the front as is continues into central New York

Drier, cooler, almost blustery northwesterly flow will build
into the region for Friday and cold advection will continue into
Friday night. This will bring 850 hPa temperatures down into the
+4 to +6C range, possibly starting to illicit a lake response,
especially over Lake Ontario. A few lake effect showers will be
possible by late Friday evening into Saturday morning, mainly across
Oswego County and the southern Tug Hill region.


Broad surface high pressure will continue to build over the Mid-
Atlantic before spreading northward into New England. With the high
pressure overhead, dry conditions will prevail through the weekend
though cloud cover is possible due to the exiting cyclonic flow

Pleasant temperatures will continue through the weekend with highs
in the low to mid 70s Saturday. However with the high pressure
expanding northward overhead it will be a few degrees warmer Sunday,
with high temperatures projected to warm up into the mid to upper


Zonal upper air pattern will transition into a ridge-trough-ridge
pattern Sunday night. As the week progresses, the trough will
sharpen and possibly develop a cut-off low over the southwestern
portions of the CONUS. As per the last few discussions,
discrepancies still remain through this timeframe in regards to the
development of the cut off low. Irregardless of these model
discrepancies, the upper level trough will promote the development
of a couple of surface lows over the north central portions of the
country. However with the strong ridge overhead of the Atlantic
coast, the frontal boundaries associated with the low pressure will
remain to our west until Wednesday which will allow for a warm humid
southerly flow to develop across the region. While, a few diurnally
driven showers and thunderstorms can not be ruled out, the majority
of the forecast will remain dry through midweek. Showers will then
increase as the frontal boundary approaches and eventually passes by
late Wednesday and Thursday.


VFR conditions will continue through most of the evening as the
eastern Great Lakes remain under the influence of a weak bubble of
high pressure. A cold front will sweep east across the region
overnight, producing a brief period of scattered showers and cloud
cover. Weakening forcing and diminishing showers will probably not
allow the low levels to saturate, with mainly VFR expected. A brief
period of MVFR CIGS is possible later tonight across the higher
terrain of the Southern Tier and Tug Hill region as upslope flow

Mainly dry weather will return Friday. Any VFR level lake effect
clouds early will give way to a few diurnal VFR level clouds by
afternoon, mainly east of Lake Ontario and also along a convergence
zone from near KIAG to KROC.

Stay tuned.
