First Alert Weather: Comfy night, followed by a fine Friday

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Thursday was picture perfect if you love the cooler, later days of summer.

Thursday night will be another comfortable night under a mainly clear sky, but it won’t be quite as cool as last night, with temperatures not falling much below 60. We also shouldn’t wake up to the fog like we did Thursday morning.

The wind turns out of the south on Friday, which will allow temperatures to rebound back into the lower 80s with plenty of sun. Some more clouds will tend to build in by afternoon, with the slight chance of an isolated late afternoon or evening shower. Otherwise, Friday is dry.

A weak cold front will drop south early Saturday morning, with a few showers possible before sunrise. Saturday will feature a mix of clouds and sun, and a few passing showers, but far from a washout. In fact, don’t go canceling any plans. You just may need to run inside for a few minutes if a shower passes overhead. Sunday will be the weekend winner, with a mostly sunny sky returning. Saturday should top out in the mid to upper 70s, with mid-70s on Sunday.

Summer hangs on: Temperatures will climb once again through the middle of next week, with highs on Monday and Tuesday in the mid-80s, then dropping sharply on Wednesday with a cold front. This front will also bring a good chance for showers and some storms. This late summer warmth will be followed by a brief blast of fall air.

There are some signs that temperatures will drop slightly below average in the upper 60s to near 70 by the end of next week and into the weekend. Overnight lows may drop into the 40s for the first time since June.
