Region’s steamy weather expected to move out late Tuesday

Head for the beach. Only the areas along the shores of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario will provide relief from another day of high heat and humidity Monday, forecasters say.

Temperatures are expected to hit the upper 80s or low 90s, with heat index readings a few degrees higher. Except for scattered thundershowers in the Southern Tier, it should be mostly clear and sunny. Monday night is expected to be just as steamy as Sunday night, with lows around 70.

Another sweltering day is predicted Tuesday, but relief will be right around the corner. Meteorologists say a slow-moving cold front will creep in Tuesday afternoon and evening, with gusty winds and thunderstorms.

Showers and thunderstorms should diminish Wednesday as cooler, drier air arrives. Clear skies and comfortable temperatures are expected throughout the holiday weekend.
