First Alert Weather: Fine weather for the Fourth of July

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The main area of low pressure responsible for our heavy rain continues to churn east. A few little spokes of energy on the western edge of the system will continue to bring a few isolated showers to Western New York tonight, with a passing shower possible toward the end of fireworks time and overnight. Otherwise, expect a partly cloudy sky with comfortable temperatures in the 60s this evening, dropping into the upper 50s overnight.

Sunday’s weather looks great. We’ll see a mix of clouds and sun and highs in the mid to upper 70s. There’s only a slight chance of a stray pop-up shower during the afternoon, mainly south in the Finger Lakes and Southern Tier. Parade and fireworks weather Sunday shouldn’t be a problem.

Next week: we’ll briefly heat things up early next week, with highs up near 90 on Monday and upper 80s on Tuesday. A slow-moving cold front will knock our temperatures back into the 80s on Wednesday, followed by 70s the rest of the week. A few isolated showers or thunder may develop later on Tuesday, with a much better chance of rain and a few storms on Wednesday, and some lingering showers on Thursday. So, we will continue to add to our rainfall tallies, which are still needed for much of the area.

Enjoy the holiday weekend!
