Forecast details:

An unsettled period of weather will be with us most of this week. Clouds will be prevalent with some peeks of sunshine from time to time.

Clouds stick around tonight with some fog developing. The chance of rain in Binghamton is around 20%, but farther southeast of Binghamton, the chance of rain increases to 60%. Overnight lows will be in the low to mid 40s.

Lots of dry time is expected Tuesday. There may be some breaks of sunshine with highs in the upper 50s to around 60. The chance of precipitation is 10%.

Wednesday looks wet with a 60% chance of rain as an upper level low pressure slide across the area. Highs will be around 60. There may be some leftover showers Thursday as well so I’ll put the chance of rain at 40%. I’ll keep an eye on the location of the upper level low pressure system as our rain chances will be directly related to our proximity to it.

A few spotty showers are possible Friday, but the chance is 20% or less so I anticipate a lot of dry time. Highs will be around 60 again.

Mothers Day weekend looks dry for now with clouds and sunshine Saturday giving way to partly sunny skies Sunday. Highs should moderate back into the mid 60s both days.
