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?

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..

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

Tue Sep 22 2020

High pressure will maintain fair weather with a gradual warming
trend this week.


Temps in the low-mid 60s this evening. No issues with high pressure
centered over the Tennessee-Kentucky dominating our weather.

Weak fropa tonight with no pcpn. Should clear out the smoke for
Wednesday. It will be milder than past several nights. lows in the
mid/upper 40s to low 50s.

Fair weather Wednesday-Wednesday night with next surface high
building across Ohio Valley. Warming trend for the rest of the week.


A southward sagging weak cold front will stall out from north of
Lake Ontario to far southern Quebec on Thursday as it bumps into
high pressure ridging north across the region from the Mid Atlantic.
With the best upper level support remaining in Canada, have just
slight chance PoPs making it as far south as the Canadian border for
Thursday and Thursday night as the boundary lingers just to our
north. However, if the weak front can sag a bit further southward, a
few scattered light showers would not be out of the question from
the Niagara Frontier northeastward to the northcountry.

Any rain chances toward the Canadian border will quickly fade by
Friday morning as the frontal boundary retreats back to the north. A
period of warm and dry weather is then expected through the first
half of the weekend as high pressure off the Atlantic seaboard
ridges west across the region keeping any rain associated with a
storm system moving across the Mid Atlantic suppressed to our south.

A general south to southwest flow will provide the area with well
above average temperatures with daytime highs generally in the 70s
through the period, and even a few 80 degree readings possible
across the typically warmer spots south of Lake Ontario on Saturday.


The nice stretch of dry weather looks like it will come to an end
heading into the second half of the weekend and the first part of
next week as a much more amplified pattern starts to take shape. An
upper trough will dig across the upper and central Great Lakes
pushing a cold front across the region on Sunday bringing the
likelihood of some much needed rain and opening the door to some
more seasonable temperatures for late September.

A powerful shortwave will then rotate through the mean upper trough
to start the new work week. This will help the trough to deepen
further across the eastern U.S. while strong upper ridge builds
north into western Canada. Not expecting a rain out through the
entire period, however this will keep the potential for unsettled
weather in the forecast through at least the first half of next week
as a series of shortwaves rotate through the mean upper trough over
the eastern U.S.

A period of strong winds may also become possible sometime Monday
or Tuesday depending on the strength and possibly a
climatologically favored track of surface low pressure moving by
to our west and north. Stay tuned.

Otherwise, day to day cooling will occur through the period as
daytime highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s on Sunday trend
downward to the upper 50s to mid 60s by Tuesday.

Stay tuned.
