First Alert Weather: Tracking storms for the end of the weekend

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — It has been a delightful weekend in Rochester so far with abundant sunshine and comfortable temperatures.

We expect the pleasant weather will continue into this evening with fair skies and mild temperatures. Low temps will only reach the mid-60s.

However, some changes will be evident by Sunday with more clouds and periodic light showers.

If you are heading to the Bills game the recommendation is to bring some rain gear. It will not be a washout, but occasional light showers will be likely at any portion of the game.

As a cold front moves across Western New York by late afternoon and into Sunday evening, there will be an increasing threat of a strong thunderstorm. This threat would include small hail, strong winds, a few downpours, and lightning.

As a result, the News10NBC First Alert Weather Team has issued a yellow alert for late Sunday and Sunday Evening. The greatest potential for severe weather will be south of Rochester.

As the front clears the area later Sunday night the chance for storms will diminish with light showers towards Monday morning. The temperature will cool into the upper-50s overnight.

News10NBC will continue to monitor the potential for severe weather and will bring you the latest updates.
