First Alert Weather: Quieter end to the work week

[anvplayer video=”5129317″ station=”998131″]

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Wednesday saw another round of widespread thunderstorms and downpours, most of which fell south of the Thruway.

This stormy pattern will finally start to break down tomorrow. A few more isolated showers, and maybe thunder will be possible both Thursday and Friday, but the majority of both days should be dry with a fair amount of sunshine and seasonably warm air. Speaking of which, we may flirt with 90 on Saturday with a mostly sunny sky. That being said, clouds will tend to increase later in the day, and rain chances slowly start to go up, especially south of the Finger Lakes. 

A more unsettled pattern will begin to work in once again starting on Sunday. In fact, the setup may be similar to what we experienced much of this week, with showers and thundery downpours sprouting up, mainly during peak heating in the afternoons. We’ll work on fine-tuning the timing and intensity of any storms next week as we get a little closer. At this point, there are no indications of impactful severe weather, so we remain green on the Threat Tracker next week. But, as we saw this week, some storms may have the potential to grow strong. We’ll keep you updated.
