ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – Mostly sunny weather will heat things up quickly today with temps near 90 by midday and 90-95 this afternoon. Today will be the hottest day since we reached 93 on June 22nd and we may end up higher than that this afternoon. The record for today’s date is 99 set way back in 1894 so that should be safe as we come up a few degrees short.

To go along with the heat we will have some humidity in the air as well. That combination will feel like temps are closer to 100 this afternoon so a heat advisory is in effect for today. Take it slow and easy as you are out and about this afternoon. A front will arrive overnight into tomorrow with a few showers and thunderstorms and cooler weather tomorrow in the 80s.
