ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – Saturday we had the coolest temperatures in more than three weeks for Rochester. The high temperature only reached 65 degrees and that is almost 15 degrees below the normal high temperature. A large area of high pressure continues to circulate a very cool, dry northerly wind across the Great Lakes and that will last through the remainder of the weekend.

Saturday night will feature clear skies. The winds will diminish this evening. But if you are going to the Jazz Festival tonight bring a jacket, as the temperature will fall through the 60s and into the 50s this evening. The low temperature will be near 50 degrees with mercury falling into the 40s in the valleys south of the Thruway. Father’s Day will bring less wind and more sunshine for the entire day. After a very cool start, the temperature will rise into the upper 60s to near 70 degrees.

Monday you can expect partial sunshine and warmer weather with the high temperature in the middle 70s. Tuesday and Wednesday the steamy weather makes a return to Western New York. However, there will be the chance of a few isolated thundershowers through mid-week. The high temperature will be within a few degrees of 90. Again, this heat will not last long as cooler and drier weather returns by Thursday.
