Forecast snapshot:

An active weather week lies ahead. A clipper system will slide through Tuesday followed by high pressure Wednesday. A warm front and a chance of rain showers move in for Thursday. Temperatures climb to above average by the end the week. Rain is likely Friday and there could be some rain or snow Saturday.

Forecast Details:

Rain and snow showers will end into the early overnight. Some clearing is expected and temperatures will drop into the 20s to near 30.

A clipper system, or fast moving low pressure system, arrives Tuesday. The chance of rain and snow will vary from north to south across the area. The highest chance of rain and higher elevation snow will be south of Binghamton. The chance there is around 80%. In and near Binghamton the chance of rain/snow is around 40% and well north of Binghamton the chance of precipitation is less than 20%. We’ll have to keep an eye on the higher elevations of northeast Pennsylvania as there could be some minor accumulations by later in the day. If snow does accumulate there, it should be less than 3 inches or so. Highs Tuesday will be in the 30s to near 40.

High pressure builds in Wednesday and brings sunshine to us. Highs will be around 40. A warm front lifts across the area Thursday and may bring some early rain showers, but most of the day looks dry. It will be breezy and mild with highs in the mid 50s. Friday also looks mild with highs in the mid 50s, but rain looks likely. The chance of rain is 60%.

The level of certainty in Saturday’s forecast is low at this time. Our forecast models vary greatly from a chance of accumulating snow to just a few rain or snow showers. I’m inclined to lean toward a few rain/snow showers for now. Highs will drop back into the 40s. Sunday looks dry with highs around 42.
