Weather forecast: A wet week with added heat and humidity

The threat for localized flooding across the area is relatively low, but still remains possible for isolated downpours that develop into early Monday morning across the Finger Lakes. A persistent low pressure system located across the Ohio Valley will only slowly move across the region overnight keeping rain and showers around even into Monday. Temperatures will remain in the 60s before climbing into the upper 70s as warmth slowly returns to start the new week. With more warmth and humidity back in the picture, chances for showers and storms go up all through the middle of next week.

Monday will mark the start of another busy week in weather as temperatures climb into the 80s and humidity ramps up across most of the Northeast. Dew points will be into the 60s and 70s through the week, and was the warm front continues to lift through the region afternoon showers and storms will be likely. Lake Breeze boundaries will be our best bet at getting storms going with the best chance at seeing a strong to severe storm with damaging wind gusts being south of Rochester and towards the Finger Lakes. In between showers there should be clouds with peaks of sun, and a lot of humid air to go around which will only increase the chances for any storms to have slow moving, heavy downpours.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected each afternoon throughout the week even after Monday with more scattered storm chances Tuesday as a series of disturbances pass through the region. Rain chances go down after Wednesday night for a brief period with temperatures staying in the 80s through the end of next week.

Summer is back, and with both rain and warmth to go with it!
