First Alert Weather: Still sticky, but less stormy Wednesday

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The storms that blew through Tuesday evening dumped heavy rain, produced an incredible amount of lightning, and some thunderstorm wind damage across the area are gone. We’ll see a few more showers, maybe some thunder overnight but non-severe.

Wednesday will be another sticky day, but not as hot and not nearly as stormy. That being said, we’ll see a few more showers and some downpours across the area. Some thunder is possible, but the weather should remain in check. Most areas will pick up less than a quarter of an inch of new rain, but a few spots may see another half-inch by day’s end. Thursday turns steamy once again, with highs up near 90 under some hazy sunshine and the slight chance of a passing shower.

We’re going to turn wet and a little stormy again on Friday, with a slow-moving cold front moving in. It’ll stall out Friday night into Saturday, with another wave of low pressure riding up along it.

This may bring us another round of heavy rain to start the weekend, before drying out on Sunday. We should also see a few nice, pleasant and dry days into early next week to help dry us out.
