Forecast Discussion:

Saturday will be an unsettled day, especially later. A weak area of low pressure will move through Pennsylvania and keep the chance of rain with us. I think we see a good amount of dry time early in the day, but rain chances look to increase through the day. The chance of rain will increase to 60% by evening. Highs will be in the low 80s.

Overnight Saturday this low pressure system is expected to move away, but it will likely continue to bring periods of rain to us. The rain could be heavy at times as the low departs. It is possible that within the zone of heaviest rain 2 or more inches of rain could fall. As of right now it looks like the heaviest rain will fall east and southeast of Binghamton. This could change if the track of the storm changes.

The chance of rain will remain high Sunday as well. I’ll keep a 60% chance in the forecast right now, but the percentage will decrease later in the day. I expect highs in the upper 70s. Next Monday and Tuesday will feature sunshine and clouds with highs in the low to mid 80s. There is a slight chance (20%) of a few showers Monday, but I currently expect a lot more dry time than wet. By next Wednesday and Thursday, sunshine should return and we could be back into the mid and upper 80s.
