First Alert Weather: Clearing sky, great again Thursday

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A cold front passing through Wednesday produced a steady for a few hours in and around Rochester, with severe weather further south and east.

That front will continue to push southward tonight and Thursday, with cooler and drier air in its wake. This will set the stage for a comfortable night with a clearing sky and areas of fog developing, especially where we saw the most persistent rain. Thursday will be a gem, with a mostly sunny sky, a few afternoon clouds, and dry and seasonable air in the mid-70s.

We’ll start to warm things up back into the 80s on Friday, with just a few isolated showers possible during the afternoon as moisture increases.

The weekend: If you’re planning any events this weekend, Sunday will be gorgeous with sunshine and seasonable warmth. Saturday is the day we’ll be timing out a few showers. It’ll be far from a washout, but a weak boundary will produce a few hit-and-miss showers. Highs on Saturday will reach the lower 80s with mid to upper 70s on Sunday.

The heat is on: The last few days of summer next week will be quite warm. Highs will rebound back into the mid-80s Monday through at least Wednesday of next week, with dry weather. A cold front will approach late next week, increasing our rain chances, and dropping our temperatures back into the 70s by Friday or Saturday of next week.
