Forecast: Turning Wet, and then Cooler

Just when you thought we were out of the woods for wet weather, another cold front is taking aim on the Genesee and Great Lakes Bay regions.

Although this front will bring unwelcomed, cooler weather to the area for mid-week, it'll also bring more rain to the area.

Many local rivers and streams are still at or above flood stage, so the 1/2" to 1" of rain that is expected in the area will only delay and possibly increase our flooding woes.

Most of the rain will fall late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning and could be accompanied by isolated rumbles of thunder.

After the cold front clears the area on Wednesday morning, the rain may briefly mix with snow before ending altogether.

Drier air will then overspread the area upon northwesterly winds.

Those who want drier, warmer weather to return won't have to wait very long.

A milder, westerly flow will become established by week's end: Highs will be well into the 50s on Friday, with 60s expected over the weekend.
