First Alert Weather: Dodging some Labor Day Weekend showers

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — If you’re planning on getting out for one last hurrah this weekend before the kids go back to school, we’ll start things off very nicely. Dry weather and clearing sky Friday night will last into Saturday. Temperatures Saturday morning will be fresh and cool, in the lower to mid-50s, and warming into the mid and upper 70s under a partly cloudy to mostly sunny sky.

Rain chances will go up a bit Saturday night as a warm front lifts through the area. As such, it’ll be a milder night with lows in the lower 60s. Both Sunday and Monday will see a little bit of rain, perhaps some thunder, with the timing at this point focusing more in the morning and early afternoon. Temperatures on Sunday will once again make it into the mid to upper 70s, with lower 70s on Monday.

Tuesday looks quite nice with seasonably mild air, dry weather, and some sun. A cold front will sweep through on Wednesday with another round of scattered showers, followed by another punch of cooler, more fall-like air to round out next week.
