ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — If you're a fan of dry weather and sun, Wednesday will be your day! Then more unsettled weather will round out the workweek.

Any showers end Tuesday evening, followed by a clearing sky overnight, and perhaps a little bit of patchy fog. Wednesday will feature a partly cloudy to a mostly sunny sky and temperatures making their way into the lower 60s after starting off in the lower 40s.

The dry weather won't last, though. An upper level low will finally make some moves to the east, bringing a wave of rain overnight, with hit and miss scattered rain showers on Thursday and Friday. This area of low pressure will bring chillier air with it. Our highs will struggle to make it to 50 both Thursday and Friday. The air will be cold enough Friday morning to maybe see some wet flakes in the high terrain of the Finger Lakes. That being said, no accumulation is expected in Western New York. It'll be a different story in eastern NYS, where some wet accumulation is likely on Friday.

The weekend is looking up, with a clearing sky and seasonable temperatures in the mid-50s on Saturday, and just a few passing showers Sunday afternoon. That being said, the majority of the weekend will be rain-free.

We'll remain a bit unsettled but seasonable early next week, with a few brief showers possible on Monday. Tuesday looks dry, but another cold front will bring rain showers and chillier air by Wednesday of next week.
