First Alert Weather: Summer Season Takes a Holiday?

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — One could say it has not been perfect weather for this holiday weekend, but enough sunshine developed Sunday to make the difference. It was a changeable day with a few rain showers for the morning and then sunshine by the afternoon.

The News10NBC First Alert meteorologists expect more changeable weather for the rest of your Labor Day weekend. Tonight will bring patchy clouds with another spotty shower later in the overnight. The temperature will fall to near 60°.

As a cold front crosses Western New York, Monday may bring another isolated thundershower for the morning. However, most of the holiday should be dry with partial sunshine for the afternoon. It will be comfortable with lower humidity and the temperature rising into the mid-70s.

Look for Tuesday to probably be the best day of the week. Expect plenty of sunshine as the temperature will climb to near 80°.

We then expect a stronger storm system will be passing across the upper Great Lakes heading into Hudson’s Bay by midweek. It appears the storm track will be far enough away from Rochester that impact will be minimal for Wednesday and Thursday.

The storm will push another cold front across the area with a higher probability of thundershowers on Wednesday and the temperature in the upper-70s. Then a spotty shower and much cooler weather expected by Thursday with the temperature near 70°.
