First Alert Weather: Comfortable Weather to Start the Week, But It will Not Last
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – Once again we had a few showers and thunderstorms fire-up along the lake breeze boundaries Sunday. Some spots, mainly along Route 104 and then into portions of the Finger Lakes, had a few lightning strikes, downpours and small hail. Sunday evening a cold front will move from west to east across the Rochester area and this will effectively shut down any convective activity. As high pressure builds in behind the front, somewhat cooler and drier weather will return.
Sunday night look for any remaining showers and thundershowers to slowly come to an end before midnight. It will slowly cool off for the overnight with a drop in the humidity by morning. The low temperature will be in the middle 50s. Monday and Tuesday should bring a refreshing change with lower humidity and lots of sunshine. The high temperature on Monday will be in the lower 70s and then into the upper 70s for Tuesday.
The middle of the week will bring a surge of mid-summer weather. Heat and humidity will build into Western New York with the mercury rising into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees for both days. Any chance of storms will be small for Wednesday, but the probability of a strong storm will go up significantly for Thursday. Right now the News 10NBC Fist Alert meteorologists will continue to watch for threatening weather and at this time, the threat tracker is green for Thursday. However, we continue to monitor the conditions for any changes.
Early indications are that the cooler, drier weather will return for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Possibly just in time for the upcoming Jazz Festival.
