First Alert Weather: Now that the wet weather has arrived, it will be a slow to move out of Rochester

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Now that the wet weather has arrived, it will be slow to move out of Rochester.

It did not rain the entire time, but it was a soggy day for Rochester. Most areas have measured at least a half-inch of rain, and more is on the way. A slow-moving front will move across Western New York over the next 24 to 36 hours. As a result, there is a high probability of rain through tonight and into Monday.

The News 10 NBC First Alert Weather Team is forecasting occasional rain and maybe a thunderstorm for the overnight. It will be very mild for this time of the year with the temperature only falling to near 60 degrees (typically we are in the upper 40s).

Keep the umbrella handy again for Monday with more showers likely with even some thunder south and east of Rochester. The temperature will rise into the upper 60s.

It will be a very slow improvement by mid-week as the front, that brought us all the rain, moves into the mid-Atlantic region. Tuesday will feature mainly gray skies with a small chance of sprinkles. The temperature will rise into the mid-60s. Finally, some sunshine will breakthrough on Wednesday with sunnier skies arriving on Thursday. Warmer temperatures will return with the sunshine as the mercury climbs back into the 70s.

It appears summer will hold on a little longer as there is no sign of traditional fall weather over the next 7 to 10 days. The News 10 NBC First Alert forecast shows above-average temperatures continuing through the weekend and into early next week.
