ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The strongest storms on Monday impacted central and eastern New York, producing severe storms and wind damage in the central and eastern Finger Lakes.

Meanwhile, we just benefited from a nice soaking rain. We’ll say goodbye to our summer-like air for a few days, with much cooler air building in for the middle part of the week. Tuesday and Wednesday will feature temperatures back in the 50s to near 60 for highs, along with some sun and a breeze on Tuesday. Tuesday may see a brief passing shower, otherwise, expect dry weather to return. Much of Wednesday should also be dry, but a few showers may develop late in the day and overnight along a warm front.

That warm front will signal our next round of warmth, with highs in the 70s again on Thursday, and well into the 80s for Friday and Saturday. In fact, we may come close to 90 in a few spots either day. Humidity will also ramp up once again by the end of the workweek and to start the weekend.

The weekend: Saturday may feature another round of storms, with a strong cold front cutting through western New York. It is early for any certainty, but we’ll keep an eye on the trends, and if strong storms continue to look possible, a Yellow Alert may need to be issued. Sunday may start off with some showers early, but the bigger weather story Sunday may be the return to cooler air again for the 2nd half of the weekend.
