ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – A big area of Canadian high-pressure building will continue to clear our sky and dry the air out. This will make for a very comfortable night with cool and crisp air.

We’ll keep that going into Friday, with sunshine and seasonably warm air near 80. A cluster of storms will dive to our south and west on Saturday, bringing more in the way of clouds, but we should stay dry. This will also introduce more humidity to the atmosphere once again, with dew points starting to climb. Highs on Saturday climb back into the mid-80s, with upper-80s on Sunday. Our next chance of wet weather moves closer over the weekend, with a few showers or thunder possible late on Sunday, but the majority of our weekend should remain dry.

That wave of low pressure will deliver some needed rainfall on Monday, with a soupy airmass and some thunder. We’ll dry out, with just a slight storm threat on Tuesday, but we’ll keep the humidity around. Dew points will surge into the upper 60s and lower 70s on Monday, and hold in the 60s through at least the middle of next week. There are also signs that much of next week will feature warmer than average temperatures, will our next 90-degree day possible by Wednesday.
