First Alert Weather: Finally the potential for some rain

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The high-pressure system that has brought beautiful summer weather the last few days is departing Western New York.

Replacing this is a swath of warmer and more humid air that will last about 36 hours. As a cold front approaches the Rochester area tomorrow this moisture-rich atmosphere along with the arrival of the front will help to trigger a few showers and thunderstorms.

This evening will be dry and warm as the temperature slowly falls through the 80s to near 70 degrees overnight. However, after midnight showers and thunderstorms will be likely. Any storms could bring a heavy downpour during the wee hours of the overnight. Tuesday another shower or thunderstorm is possible. It will be breezy and humid with the high temperature in the lower 80s. Another spotty thundershower is possible Tuesday night and Wednesday, but the probability of rain will be much less. Wednesday the humidity will fall with the temperature in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.

Looks like another stretch of mainly dry and comfortable weather returning for the second half of the week. We should see an abundance of sunshine on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and most of Sunday. The temperature will slowly rise through the 80s heading into the weekend.
