Cool Friday showers
The storm system we've been tracking all week long as it's been drifting in from the west is pulling away to the northeast today, producing brisk winds and a few light showers for the area to round out the workweek. High temperatures will be in the mid-50s with a brisk westerly breeze this afternoon. Shower chances will taper off by 6:00 this evening with drier, colder weather tonight with lows overnight in the lower 40s.
Clouds will hang around for Saturday with a brisk northwest breeze adding a chill to the air as temperatures only reach the lower 50s making it the coolest day since the first of the month. A storm system to our south will bring rain chances to much of the area for the midday and afternoon hours. Right now, it looks like the best chances for rain will be from Rochester to the east and southeast starting around 11:00 AM and continuing until late Saturday night.
Bright and mild Sunday
Clouds will gradually clear off during the morning hours Sunday and the afternoon looks bright and somewhat mild with high temperatures in the lower 60s. A northwest breeze occasionally reaching 15 miles per hour will keep things feeling just a bit cooler, however.
Seasonably cool with a little rain next week
A weak storm system will graze the area to the north on Monday, bringing a few spotty rain showers for the afternoon hours. We'll manage a few hours of sunshine before that to help temperatures warm into the lower 50s.
Colder air will blow into the area on Tuesday behind a cold front, making that the coldest day of the upcoming week. Expect occasional sunshine throughout the day with high temperatures in the low to mid-40s.
After a bright and slightly warmer Wednesday, another storm system will approach the region from the west, bringing a small chance of rain for late Thursday and especially Friday with high temperatures in the seasonable 50s.
