Milder with a Passing Shower or Two; Rain Late Tonight**FLOOD WARNING is in effect now through Monday afternoon for Wyoming and Genesee counties**
Warm and Windy Monday
*HIGH WIND WATCH in effect Monday for Monroe, Orleans, Genesee and Wyoming counties*
After a quiet and milder Sunday, a slug of rain will move in late tonight into early Monday with a warm front. It will turn windy with evening lows in the mid to upper 40s before rising into the 50s late. In the wake of the front, it will turn somewhat sunny and quite warm on Monday with highs well up into the 60s combined with strong winds possibly gusting to 60 mph at times, especially later in the day into Monday night on the west side of Rochester. The warm up is very much welcomed for many of us, but for our friends southwest of Rochester and out near Buffalo, it means more cause for concern. The combination of much warmer temperatures and some rain means the potential for significant flooding through early this week for the areas hardest hit with the lake snows last week. A strong cold front will then chill us down to more seasonable levels late Monday through the rest of the week with maybe a little lake snow and mixed showers Tuesday. We will have to watch the coast for later Wednesday into the start of Thanksgiving, as a storm will take shape and move up the coast, possibly providing us with a little snow here, but probably bigger travel headaches for Wednesday and the start of the holiday off to the east. Stay tuned for updates.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend WNY!
