First Alert Weather: More dry weather and heat headed our way

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – Another round of scattered downpours Wednesday afternoon brought some much-needed rainfall to parts of our area, but not everybody.

Outside of a passing shower tonight, and the slight chance of a shower tomorrow, we’re headed into another dry stretch of weather. High-pressure building in will mean more sunshine for Friday, Saturday, and most of Sunday. A wave of low pressure moving in late Sunday will bring a renewed chance for some rain Sunday night and into Monday. So, while many of us may still be looking for more rain, many will welcome dry weather over the weekend.

We’re also headed for more sultry air this weekend. Highs on Thursday will hover in the upper 70s, and lower 80s for Friday. Saturday climbs into the mid to upper 80s, and we’ll flirt with 90 on Sunday. temperatures will drop back a little early next week with rain making a return, but there are some signs of more heat toward the middle to end of next week. Stay tuned.
