Mix changes over to showers as temperatures rise

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A storm system bringing a mixed bag of precipitation is crossing the Great Lakes Wednesday night. Mixed rain and snow showers will change over to purely rain, possibly even a rumble of thunder Wednesday night as temperatures rise back into the 40s. The mildest air on Thursday will come in the morning, with highs briefly in the 50s. Showers will taper, and cooler and drier air begins to move in for the afternoon. We’ll drop back into the 40s with some breaks of sun trying to return. Friday should be quiet with a mostly cloudy sky and temperatures in the upper 40s.

The weekend will be cool, with highs in the lower 40s and lows at or below freezing, but we should see mainly dry weather. The only real chance of precipitation we have is in in the form of a few brief lake rain showers on Saturday. Otherwise, expect some sun to make a return. Much of next week should be mostly dry and quiet with cool air to start, followed by milder air by mid to late week.
