First Alert Weather: Overnight storms clear by morning, then just manmade fireworks the rest of the July 4th weekend
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — It’s been another hot day, with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s, but we’ll take the temperature down a notch this weekend following a cold front.
That cold front moves through overnight with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. There’s a slight chance of a gusty storm or two, but most storms should be non-severe and produce some beneficial rain. Most will see a tenth of an inch or two of rain tonight, but any thunderstorms may produce a half-inch of rain. That’s great! Even better, wet weather should clear the area by morning, leaving us with a spectacular July 4th weekend.
Dew points drop into the 50s, and air temperatures drop into the lower 80s with a clearing sky on Saturday. Sunday should feature a mostly sunny sky with highs in the upper 70s to near 80, and lower 80s with some afternoon clouds on Monday.
The timing of our holiday weekend and our next round of rain may play out perfectly, with rain holding off for fireworks Monday night, then moving in by Tuesday morning. Our pattern next week should give us seasonable warmth, with daytime highs in the lower 80s, and just very slight rain chances beyond Tuesday.
