ROCHESTER N.Y. (WHEC) — Cool air has settled over the Northeast.

In fact, a frost advisory is in effect late tonight into early Wednesday morning for Wyoming County. Our growing season has officially begun, and some patchy frost is possible well south of Rochester. If you have temperature-sensitive plants, it isn’t a bad idea to bring them inside if you live south of the Thruway. While it’ll be a chilly start to the day Wednesday, we’ll see beautiful sunshine in the morning. Clouds thicken up during the afternoon, and some showers work in after dinner-time.

Most of these showers should be out of the area by Thursday morning, but a few stragglers may linger. Then, we wait on the warmth.

Highs on Friday and Saturday should surge well into the 80s. There are some spots that may flirt with 90 both afternoons. An approaching cold front will bring another round of showers and storms to the area Saturday afternoon and evening. A few of those storms could be strong with gusty winds. We’ll track the trend of these storms and may issue a Yellow Alert if strong to severe storms look more likely as we get a little closer.

We’ll lose the big warmth by Sunday, with any early showers ending, and a little afternoon sun. Temperatures will likely top out in the 60s again by Sunday, and into early next week.
