Weather forecast: Let’s make a run at 90°

Temperatures today made it to 88 degrees in Rochester, and it looks like we may make a run at 90 degrees today.

Heat and humidity can often mean we get a shower or storm around, but lack of any trigger means we avoid the rain, besides an isolated drop or two here and there across the Finger Lakes. Overnight lows remain mild, staying in the lower and middle 60s. That will mean some uncomfortable sleeping conditions for those without air conditioning. Friday will be another day with more heat. It could be even warmer with continued model suggestion we’ll take a run at 90 degrees by early afternoon.
