ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — We’ve been stuck in the muck (clouds, showers and mist) for the past few days, but we’re about to turn the corner. But first, we need to deal with one more batch of showers tonight and through the first part of Wednesday.

Kids who have their first day of school tomorrow may need to grab an umbrella as they walk out the door. Showers should tend to diminish into the afternoon. In fact, we may see some sunshine and blue sky before the sun sets Wednesday!

High-pressure building in from the Great Lakes will bring a return to a partly cloudy sky on Thursday, and only the outside chance of an isolated shower, followed by nearly full sunshine on Friday. Temperatures will also respond to the sun, with highs back into the mid-70s on Thursday, and 80s on Friday.

The weekend: Saturday will be the winner of the weekend, with highs into the mid-80s, dry weather and a good deal of sun. Our next weather maker begins to move in on Sunday, bringing an increasing chance for some showers, especially later in the day on Sunday, and continuing off and on through the middle of next week, as an area of low pressure once again gets “stuck” overhead. This will keep us unsettled, with temperatures slightly below average, in the mid-70s.
