A warmer weekend, then turning wet Monday

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – We’ve enjoyed a few days with comfortable temperatures and humidity levels, but that’ll be changing this weekend. Highs on Saturday will climb into the mid 80s, with upper 80s on Sunday. Both days will feature a mix of clouds and sun, and mainly dry weather. We’re still watching at least the chance of an isolated shower or thundershower Sunday afternoon, but the wettest weather will hold off this weekend. In fact, we may be looing at exactly what we need on Monday – a wet day with periods of rain and rumbles, heavy at times. As long as the rain doesn’t come down too heavily in any thunderstorms, our parched and hard ground should be able to absorb the beneficial rain. Some spots may see more than a half inch of rain.

In addition to this rain, we’ll crank up the humidity starting on Monday. Dew points will hold in the upper 60s and lower 70s through at least Wednesday or Thursday of next week. This, combined with air temperatures climbing well into the 80s starting on Tuesday, will make it feel uncomfortable. Wednesday and Thursday will likely see another round of rain and some storms with an area of low pressure approaching, and a cold front.

In all – enjoy the mostly dry and summery weekend, and the rain that follows Monday. The pattern turns warmer again next week.
