First Alert Weather: Western trend continues with Henri, will bring us more clouds and shower activity

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The western trend on weather models for the track of Henri has continued this morning.

This will still not bring us major impacts locally, but this trend continues to increase our cloud cover and bring us a better chance for showers to move in from the southeast this weekend. Out the door early this morning, we will need our raincoat and umbrella as scattered showers are expected before they slowly dry out towards the middle of the day. We will still see light lingering showers towards lunchtime, but less in terms of numbers than what is occurring early this morning. Shower activity will continue this afternoon and this evening before things dry out late tonight. A washout is not expected, but the western trend with Henri’s track will ring us a cloudier day and a better chance for showers.

Shower chances will also increase for Sunday and Monday as Henri makes landfall tomorrow and slowly moves along the Hudson Valley Monday. Once again light showers are expected to pass across Western New York Sunday, and again we will likely see a mostly cloudy day as well. On Monday as Henri moves along the Hudson Valley, we could see a few heavier showers with tropical moisture in place. The outer rain bands of Henri will likely move in from the east and bring us a chance to see brief periods of heavier rain Monday afternoon. No flooding is expected, but some of the heavier showers could reduce visibility on area roadways. Henri will sit and meander near the Capital Region Monday before a cold front will help kick Henri out of the Northeast. This will also help clear our skies, but not turn us cooler. Temperatures early this week will make their way into the upper 80s Tuesday afternoon and we will also remain on the humid side, but tropical rain will no longer be expected after Tuesday.
