ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The main batch of severe thunderstorms is well to our south today, impacting the Mid-Atlantic.

Meanwhile, we saw a few afternoon/evening thundershowers popping off of the lake breeze boundary between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. These drop south and end, leaving us with a dry and partly cloudy night.


We will keep the quiet weather into Thursday and most of Friday, thanks to a weak bubble of high pressure sitting overhead. That being said, a weak boundary will keep some more clouds around south, and even a few showers possible in the Southern Tier Thursday.

Temperatures away from the Lake Ontario shoreline should make it into the lower 80s.

Friday should also feature mainly dry weather, aside from a few isolated instability showers during the afternoon. Highs on Friday will make it into the mid-80s.

We will see a better chance for some showers, maybe a rumble late evening into the overnight as a cold front approaches. This will knock us back into the 70s on Saturday, and 60s for Sunday, with much lower humidity and a fair amount of sun. 

We will start off next week dry and sunny with high pressure at the surface, and ridging building in aloft.

But, the remnants of Tropical Storm Cristobal will get picked up by the jet stream and may bring us some storms with tropical downpours by Wednesday or Thursday of next week. This is obviously a ways away, so at this point, we are simply keeping an eye on the track.
