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!

Grateful For Loss

We recently got a sad diagnosis for our 2 year old kitty, Sophie. Knowing this may be the last blog I write with her by my side, I am comforted knowing although she lived a short life, it brought with it such joy to a family that was in desperate need. I have jokingly called her "my therapy cat".

Dear Younger Me

Dear Younger Me,

Looking back I see an awkward girl with glasses, braces and big hair. I spent most of my younger years trying to fit in, living for the weekends, and making lots of bad decisions. Wow, would I love to go back and sit down with the younger me. I'd want to shake her and tell her to get her act together, much like my parents wanted at the time, I'm sure.

Happy Anniversary??

Has it been a year? Let me pinch myself. Did we actually make it out alive?

This has been the ugliest, longest, most beautiful, fastest, most confusing year of my life. I realize the battle is not over yet, but its a good time to reflect.


Rochester's 7 Day Forecast

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Buffalo NY
Sun Sep 20 2020

High pressure will be near the area for the foreseeable future.
Frost is again likely for portions of the area tonight, with a
freeze possible in some locations. Dry weather and a gradual warming
trend is expected through mid-week.


Going frost advisories and freeze warnings remain on track for the
overnight hours.

High pressure will continue to dominate the Northeast and Mid-
Atlantic. Result is weak easterly to northeasterly flow eventually
shifting southeast tonight. With a strong inversion setting up and
increasing flow above the inversion, this will yield increasingly
southeasterly flow over the warmer lakes overnight. Additionally,
based upon how low the inversion looks to set up, some of the higher
spots along the Chautauqua Ridge will likely remain a bit breezier
overnight. This will keep lows up a bit in these locations. Thus,
the chance of frost will be lower in much of Chautauqua County than
farther east in Cattaraugus and Allegany counties.

Otherwise, the high overhead will yield another clear and cool night
for most locations. This will allow for efficient radiational
cooling, but a weak southerly flow overnight will keep temperatures
up a couple degrees in most spots relative to the last two nights.
Blended forecast mins with guidance that has done better the last
couple cool nights and only change of note was to lower mins by a
few degrees over northern Jefferson county toward St. Lawrence River
valley. Thus, no changes were needed to the going frost advisories
and freeze warnings.


High pressure over the Northeast on Monday will elongate south along
the coast and center over the Southern Appalachians by Wednesday
morning. This will provide quiet weather through Wednesday
morning. All the while, flow will gradually turn southerly and
eventually southwesterly, though never really becoming all that
strong. This will result in a slow warming trend through the
short term period.


A weak cold front will approach the eastern Great Lakes Thursday.
High pressure will remain across the region through the end of the
week. The front may move into the North Country Thursday night
however it is likely that it will retreat back to the north by
Friday night. In the meantime, a flat shortwave trough will pass
overhead while a dry airmass persist. Can`t rule out a few showers
Friday but the chance is low.

A deep southerly flow forms this weekend as high pressure moves off
the New England coast and a strong cold front tracks east across the

Temperatures will be above-normal late week into the weekend.

Stay tuned.
