ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – Some nice weather to celebrate the Nation’s birthday.

In many ways, this Independence Day has been a typical early July day for Western New York. High pressure has produced warm temperatures, but reasonable amounts of humidity. However, a warm front is set to move into the area and that will usher in more steamy weather with an increasing chance of a few showers and maybe a thunderstorm over the next 24 hours.

If you are heading to one of the area fireworks shows the weather should cooperate. Look for mostly cloudy skies and it will not be as cool as the last few nights. Expect the temperature to slowly fall through the 70s and eventually drop into the middle 60s. Tuesday it is a good idea to bring an umbrella, but any showers and thundershowers will be limited throughout the day. Expect lots of humidity with the high temperature in the low to mid-80s. Any showers and thundershowers should slowly come to an end Tuesday evening.

Wednesday a cold front will have moved through Western New York so it will be noticeably cooler and drier. Expect plenty of sunshine with the temperature will be in the upper 70s. We will find more sunshine for Thursday with the temperature rising into the lower 80s.
