It is going to be hot on Friday, with temperatures forecast to hit 87 in Orleans County. The heat index will be at 91.

The temperature takes a big drop to highs of 60 on Saturday and 65 on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service in Buffalo.

The Weather Service says gusty southwest winds will develop Friday ahead of a strong cold front. Winds may gust to over 50 miles per hour northeast of Lake Erie and across Niagara and Orleans counties.

These gusty winds will also increase wave heights on Lake Ontario such that a beach hazard statement for dangerous rip currents developing is likely for Friday and then possibly again for Saturday, the Weather Service said.
