ROCHESTER, N.Y. – It hasn’t been our finest Labor Day, with cool air, lots of clouds and light rain for most of the day.

The heaviest rain has fallen south of Rochester, and that will continue to be the trend through the first part of the overnight. The steadiest rain will taper, leaving us with a murky night and start to Tuesday. Showers will be far fewer on Tuesday, but a few will linger, so any kids heading back to school on Tuesday may want to at least pack that umbrella for the bus stop. We won’t see much sun, which will help to keep temperatures in the 60s much of the day, but the sky may brighten just a bit by the end of the day.

We will finally see drier air moving in by Wednesday, bringing us a little more blue in the sky through the rest of the week. We will still have the slight chance of a shower or two both Wednesday and Thursday, before ending the week on a high note with sunshine, 80s and dry weather for Friday.

The upcoming weekend will be another split one, with warm air, and mainly dry weather on Saturday, followed by more clouds and a better chance for a little rain by Sunday.
