ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — You can't complain that it has been dry. We have measured at least a trace of precipitation for the last nine days, including today, and we keep that streak going tomorrow.

A nearly stationary boundary will meander overhead, with waves of moisture riding up along it. This will keep us unsettled straight through this week, with fluctuating temperatures, and several rounds of rain. Showers will taper a bit by Tuesday morning, leading to a mainly dry start to the day. But that won't last.

We'll see a few scattered showers returning, with some afternoon rumbles possible. A more widespread area of rain moves in Tuesday night, tapering through the first part of Wednesday. Then, we'll be turning breezy and cooler Wednesday afternoon.

Thursday looks like the only dry day of the week, with another round of showers, possibly mixing with some wet flakes in the higher terrain of the Southern Tier as chillier air once again moves in.

Speaking of which, temperatures-wise, Tuesday will be the mildest day of the week, with highs into the 60s, before dropping through the 50s on Wednesday. Thursday holds in the mid-50s, with highs again dropping from the 50s into the 40s on Friday.

The good news: The weekend looks like it'll be improving a bit, with mainly dry weather Saturday. We'll watch a wave of rain on Mother's Day, that may impact parts of our region. Right now, the steadiest rain may clip southern parts of the area, but we'll keep you updated as we get a little closer.
