Warm sunshine today

Warmer, slightly more humid air is working its way into our area today on a southerly breeze ahead of a storm system approaching from the Plains. High temperatures today will be in the mid-80s with dew point temperatures in the mid and upper 60s across the area. South winds will occasionally reach 15 to 20 miles per hour.

Severe weather Tuesday

A line of thunderstorms is expected to roll into our area from the northwest late tonight, the remnants of some stronger activity that is expected to develop this afternoon in the Plains. Those storms will likely dissipate during the early morning hours Tuesday, allowing for sunshine to break through the clouds for the middle part of the day. That additional sunshine will then heat things up, possibly destabilizing the atmosphere and setting the stage for an outbreak of strong to severe thunderstorms in the afternoon and early evening Tuesday. Large hail and damaging winds will be the primary concern, but a few tornadoes can't be ruled out in this situation.

Temperatures will be in the upper 70 to around 80 degrees tomorrow. If Rochester fails to reach 80, it will be the first time this month officially.

Bright and pleasant midweek

High pressure will settle into the region Wednesday om the heels of Tuesday cold front and storm system, making for a sunny, mild weather picture for us. High temperatures will be in the seasonable lower 80s with a slight break from mugginess for a while.

A hot, humid weekend

A much warmer air mass will build in for Friday and the weekend and we're expecting temperatures that will be reminiscent of those we experienced around Independence Day. Look for high temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s with a few isolated thunderstorms in the area each afternoon, fueled by the extra humidity.
