ROCHESTER N.Y. (WHEC) — As promised, it’s been a gloomy and wet Thursday. The steady rain pulls east tonight, leaving us with just a passing shower or two.

We’ll even see a little bit of clearing, which means some sun will greet us Friday morning. It’ll be short-lived, with more scattered showers developing during the afternoon. This theme of a mainly dry morning, followed by some afternoon showers will continue into Saturday. Temperatures this weekend will fall back a bit into the 40s for highs. So, our trend of less than ideal weekends will continue. Sunday may even feature a few snow or graupel showers mixing in with rain showers. Despite the less than ideal weather, we remain GREEN on the First Alert Threat Tracker, with the weather having a fairly low impact on us.

Milder air returns on Monday, with temperatures back in the 50s with some sun. We should be back into the 60s and even 70s through much of the rest of next week, but we’ll have to watch a cold front to our north Tuesday and Wednesday. At this point, it appears it’ll stay north of us, keeping us mainly dry and mild. A storm system will eventually bring another round of rain, maybe some thunder by Thursday of next week.
