Sun will be with us early Saturday and into the midday before an increase in clouds takes over as a cold front moves closer to us in the afternoon. There is a slight chance of a few showers later in the day and if I had to estimate the timing of any showers I would say after about 5pm from west to east. This cold front is not working with a lot of moisture, so I think some folks will likely stay dry while others see some showers. The highest chance of rain will be in the Finger Lakes and for places north. I’ll put the chance of rain at 20% in Binghamton, but slightly higher around 30% in the areas mentioned above. It will be a mild day with highs in the low to mid 60s. A few leftover showers are possible Saturday night with lows around 43.

Sunday should be a dry day for many folks, but places north and east of Binghamton will see a 25% chance of some lake enhanced rain showers. Some clearing is expected to take place into the evening. Highs will be in the low to mid 50s, but with a northwest wind gusting to 25-30mph, it will feel colder.

Clouds increase Monday with highs around 60. Tuesday will be unseasonably warm and windy with highs possibly reaching 70. I’m keeping us dry for the time being. By next Wednesday the chance of showers will increase to around 30%. Highs will be around 60. Thursday will return back to ‘normal’ for this time of year with highs in the low to mid 50s.
