Weather Update: Summer sizzle returns Sunday & Monday

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Mild air Saturday transitions into a comfortable night Saturday night, with a clear sky and temperatures dipping into the 50s away from Lake Ontario. So it’ll be a great night to open up the windows and turn the air conditioning off, if you have it. But, we’ll be turning up the heat again by Sunday, with highs reaching into the mid and upper 80s with a mostly sunny sky. Temperatures will peak on Monday, with highs near 90 under a partly cloudy sky. More moisture begins to work in on Monday, which¬† means we may see a stray afternoon or evening storm, but most of the day is dry. A cold front moving through on Tuesday will bring a much better chance for showers and some thunderstorms. Depending on when the front moves through, we could see a few storms with gusty winds, so we’ll keep an eye on the timing Tuesday.¬†

Another punch of cooler and drier air will move in following Tuesday’s cold front, with highs in the lower half of the 70s for the remainder of next week, and overnight lows in the 50s. In fact, it may be cool enough for a minor lake response on Thursday, with some lake clouds or a few early showers. If you’re looking ahead to Labor Day weekend, the early forecast looks great! Both Saturday and Sunday look dry with seasonably warm air, and just the slight chance of a later day shower on Labor Day. This is still an early forecast, so keep checking back as we make updates.
