ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The weather will be warm and muggy on Friday with mostly cloudy skies and some showers and thundery downpours.

Keep the umbrella handy, even though most of the day will be rain-free. Any showers or storms that pop up could produce locally heavy downpours.

Looking ahead to the weekend, the heat will be on the increase with temperatures near 90 tomorrow and into the 90s on Sunday. Combine that with high levels of humidity and the heat index feel like temps will be in the upper 90s.

The majority of the weekend will be rain-free but be prepared for a possible late-day thunderstorm during the heat of the day on both Saturday and Sunday. Stay tuned to News10NBC for updates on any storms today and when we get relief from the heat next week.
