ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – High pressure continues to drift across the Great Lakes this weekend and that has kept a consistently cool, dry northerly wind across the Rochester area. This is the second day in a row with the temperature remaining in the 60s. In the coming days a warm front will slowly move through Western New York which will boost the temperature and humidity significantly.

Sunday night will bring clear skies at times. It will be another very cool night as the low dips to near 50 degrees, but into the 40s south of Rochester. Monday will bring partly to mostly sunny skies. It should be a comfortable June day with the mercury rising into the middle 70s. As the warm front begins to cross the area, there will be the chance of a passing shower or thunderstorm for late Monday night, Tuesday and Wednesday. It should be noted that this is not expected to be a widespread rainfall, but rather “hit and miss” thundershowers. The summer solstice arrives on Tuesday morning at 5:14 AM. This is the official start of summer in the northern hemisphere. This will be good timing because it will certainly feel like summer with the temperature rising into the mid-80s on Tuesday and nearing 90 degrees by Wednesday.

Look for a return to more sunshine, less humidity and the temperature near 80 degrees for Thursday and Friday.
