First Alert Weather: Mid-Summer conditions return, but the steamy weather will not last long

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — It did not take long for the heat and humidity to return to Western New York.

The temperatures made it back into the low 80s with lots of muggy weather today. The News10NBC First Alert Weather team expects the mid-summer weather to last for another 24 to 36 hours. Tuesday will bring another round of temperatures in the mid-80s and plenty of humidity as the dew point will approach 70° by the evening.

However, this latest bout of steamy weather will end quickly with the passage of a cold front during Tuesday night. This cold front will bring an increasing threat of showers and thunderstorms with the potential for heavy downpours by Tuesday afternoon and evening. The News10NBC First Alert Weather Team will be monitoring the conditions for a possible Yellow Alert for Tuesday later afternoon and evening.

Once the cold clears Western New York on Wednesday we expect much more comfortable conditions to return to Rochester. Time to open the windows and let the fresh air in! Expert more sunshine, comfortable temperatures and much lower amounts of humidity through later Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
