First Alert Weather: No sign of sultry, summer air

ROCHESTER N.Y. (WHEC) — The summer heat and humidity of the last few days is gone, and a pattern shift will keep it away for the next week or so. A weak disturbance may bring a few showers into the first part of tonight, then the sky clears, leading to a cool and comfortable night. Lows tonight will drop into the lower 50s. Friday and Saturday look spectacular, with high pressure building in, almost ensuring us dry weather and an abundance of sunshine. The only exception may be a brief passing shower Friday afternoon with a weak upper level disturbance. Outside of that, expect a mostly sunny sky with temperatures back in the 70s on Friday, and dropping into the 60s for highs on Saturday. Sunday will feature more afternoon clouds, but if you have plans to attend Fairport Canal Days, or any outside plans for that matter, the weather will cooperate.

Monday may be our only chance of flirting with 80 over the next week to week and a half. Our next round of more widespread rain will arrive late Monday and last into Tuesday. This will clear later Tuesday, giving us dry weather on Wednesday before a few more afternoon showers are possible next Thursday as another pocket of cool air sits over the Northeast. This will keep us slightly cooler than average, with daytime highs in the lower 70s, and overnight lows in the lower to mid 50s. So, if you’re not a fan of the summer sizzle, this weather is for you!
