ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — If you haven't been a fan of the cooler than average air we've had around the last few days, you'll like what's headed our way for Wednesday.

High pressure slides to our east, which will allow a southerly wind to develop, and pump in warmer air. In fact, that milder air begins to move in overnight, with temperatures falling into the lower 50s instead of the lower 40s, like this morning.


We should see more hazy sunshine with a thin veil of smoke overhead on Wednesday, and temperatures back into the mid to upper 70s. You'll notice a breeze out of the southwest 10-20 mph, maybe a few higher gusts from Buffalo to Rochester.

Then, another cold front will move in Thursday morning, triggering another shot of cooler air. This cold front will be moisture-starved, so expect nothing more than a few light showers through the first part of Thursday.

It'll be a strong front, though, with highs back into the 60s on Friday, and likely holding in the upper 50s over the weekend.

That being said, the weekend will be pretty, with plenty of sunshine and dry weather. High-pressure overhead this weekend will likely allow for some frost to form, mainly south of the Thruway and away from Lake Ontario.

So, if you have plants that are susceptible to the cold,  you'll want to start thinking about keeping them protected from the cold this weekend.
