First Alert Weather: A wet and warm weekend on the way
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Another Friday and another comfortable day to start across the region. Temperatures once again begin the morning near 60 degrees, but unlike the last couple of days where we have been cool, we will see highs reach the mid 80s.
Also, in Friday afternoon will be greeted with plenty of sunshine but another chance for an afternoon storm will pop up.
Only a stray shower or storm is possible, and the best chance for that will be for areas north of the Thruway. This will be thanks to a potential lake breeze convergence near Lake Ontario which could provide enough pop to grow a storm.
Other than that, most of us will be dry and enjoying a wonderful day ahead. Things will clear this evening for any evening and overnight plans and the dry weather will continue into early Saturday. We will continue to warm up Saturday as highs reach the 90 degree mark.
A weak area of low pressure off the East Coast will bring the chance for a shower or storm late in the day, but most of the day will be great. A better chance for rain will arrive Sunday.
A slow-moving cold front moves in for Sunday and will bring us increased cloud cover and increased chances for showers and storms during the afternoon. A washout is not expected at this time, but numerous showers and storms will be popping across our region, especially west of Rochester.
Our entire region will see some rain heading into Sunday evening and through Monday as we remain unsettled. Low pressure will slowly move through New England into early next week with rain chances continuing through Wednesday morning before drying out.
The rain is much needed because of how dry the conditions have been. As of now into Tuesday morning, we can expect half an inch to one inch of rain with localized locations seeing upwards to an inch and a half. No flooding is expected across our region.
