ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Monday will start with a lot of sunshine, which will allow temperatures to soar to near 90 by midday and into the low 90s in the afternoon.

The record for August 29th is 94, set back in 1973. We will be close to that record in the afternoon. The humidity will also be on the high side on Monday, so the feel-like heat index will be in the mid and upper 90s.

A heat advisory is in effect for the region, so take it slow and east outside in the afternoon. Most of the day will be rain free but an isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible later today, so keep an eye on the sky. There will be a better chance for showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday as a cold front moves through.

Cooler and drier weather is back midweek. Stay tuned to News10NBC for the latest on the storms and the forecast for the Labor Day Weekend.
