Some needed rain before the heat returns by later this weekend

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – A slow moving warm front and low pressure system will drift across Western New York over the next 36 hours.  As a result, unsettled weather will continue for the start of the week.  This includes occasional showers and thunderstorms with noticeably higher amounts of humidity. Our weather will feel more tropical at times until this low pressure system exits the region during Tuesday morning.

The big improvement with arrive Wednesday and most of Thursday with mostly sunny skies and comfortable conditions.  The high temperature will be in the low to middle 80s. Friday could bring a morning shower, otherwise more sunshine and a high temperature in the upper 70s. 

Looking ahead to the weekend and early next week, the heat should be returning to Rochester.  Early indications are that the temperature could be within a few degrees of 90 for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
