ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Thursday was spectacular, though quite cool for mid-September, only topping out in the lower and mid-60s, but under a mostly sunny sky.

The cool air to start and clear sky will allow for another very cool night, with temperatures dipping into the mid-40s away from Lake Ontario. Despite that cool start to Friday, we’ll warm into the lower 70s once again, thanks to a warm front lifting through the region. This front may bring a few more clouds, but sunshine should still win out overall Friday.

Saturday still looks great, with summer-like temperatures in the lower 80s and dry weather sticking around under a mostly sunny sky. Sunday still features the chance for a few showers or thunder, but most of this should hold off until later in the day.

So, you may still need to plan around a little wet weather this weekend, but the majority of the time will be rain-free. We’re still expecting warmer than average temperatures into much of next week, but the difficulty will be timing out our next big cold front, which may work into the area a little earlier than previously thought, arriving on Thursday. This would allow us to warm into the 80s again through Wednesday. Our cold front sweeps through on Thursday with some rain, then a noticeable drop in temperatures by late week and into next weekend. Stay tuned as we continue to fine-tune the details.
