First Alert Weather: A sultry summer weekend

[anvplayer video=”5127056″ station=”998131″]

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Slow-moving thunderstorms from Friday will fizzle with the loss of daytime heating, leaving us with a partly cloudy sky overnight, and another warm and muggy night.

Temperatures will have a hard time dropping out of the 70s for a 3rd straight night, and we have more to go. The weekend as a whole will be the hottest of the summer, with air temperatures likely in the lower 90s on both days, and dew points in the upper 60s and lower 70s making it feel more like the mid-90s. As far as rain chances go, the majority of the weekend will be dry, but each afternoon will feature the chance for a few pop-up thunderstorms.

The heat and humidity will continue into Monday, with a better chance for some later day storms ahead of a cold front. This front will sag through western New York on Tuesday, bringing drier and more comfortable air to the region starting on Wednesday, and through the rest of the week. After a rather unsettled week or so with soaking downpours and scattered thunderstorms, there are signs of a quieter pattern returning for the 2nd half of next week and into next weekend.
