ROCHESTER, N.Y. – After several rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms earlier today and some communities east of Rochester seeing over an inch of rain, the worst appears to be over for Western New York.  A cold front will push across the area during the overnight and this will take much of the wet weather east of Rochester as drier air slowly filters in for Thursday.

The remainder of tonight steady rain will give way to lighter showers. The temperature will hover in the middle 50s.  Thursday any scattered sprinkles east of Rochester will come to an end for the early morning.  Skies will begin to brighten with breaks of sunshine later in the afternoon.  It will be breezy and cooler with the high temperatures in the middle 50s.  Friday and Saturday should bring much more sunshine, but it will be rather cool for this time of the year with mercury remaining in the mid-to-upper 40s.
