Weather update: More thundery downpours Tuesday

Scattered storms and downpours produced what many have been hoping for – some beneficial rain across much of the area on Monday. We’ll see the rain risk continuing into tonight, and at least the first part of Tuesday. The wettest part of the day will be the morning. Then as an area of low pressure pulls away, we’ll see a drying trend by afternoon, along with some more breaks of afternoon sun. We’ll see a few dry days on Wednesday and Thursday, before a cold front on Friday will bring a renewed chance for some showers or a few storms. 

That cold front will set us up for a comfortable start to the weekend, with highs in the 70s, low humidity and plenty of sunshine. But that milder air won’t last long. We’ll climb back into the 80s on Sunday, then possibly into the 90s on Monday and Tuesday, before another cold front drops us back to seasonable temperatures in the 70s and lower 80s. As far as rain chances, some isolated showers are possible Sunday afternoon, though most of the day will be dry. Monday should also be mainly dry and hot, with rain and storm chances spiking on Tuesday. 

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Keep the umbrella handy on Monday as rounds of showers are likely with a few heavier thundery downpours possible in the afternoon.

The rain early Monday morning will taper off for a bit before the activity increases again in the afternoon, so it won’t be a washout. Rain through midday will generally be light with no thunder expected.

That will change in the afternoon, as a few storms may fire and produce locally heavy downpours. Be prepared for changeable conditions throughout the day.

This pattern will continue on Monday night into Tuesday. Drier weather returns on Wednesday. Stay tuned to News10NBC for the latest updates on the showers and storms.
