SCORCHING: Relief in sight from heat, humidity in Finger Lakes

Relief is on the way, but don’t expect an overnight change.

Following an extremely hot Saturday – things will cool off slightly on Sunday, as high temperatures top out in the mid-80s. There will still be plenty of humidity in the air, but a frontal passage will bring more moderate temperatures by nighttime.

Those temperatures will remain moderate throughout the week, as highs settle into the low-80s, with significantly less humidity.

In the meantime, overnight lows heading into the second half of this summertime weekend will hover around 75 degrees. There’s a 50 percent shot of a shower or thunderstorm; and that risk will likely carry over from the late-afternoon, early-evening timeframe when scattered showers or thunderstorms will be possible.

Here’s what the work week looks like from the FingerLakes1.com Weather Center:
