A short period of showers and storms are likely Thursday as a cold front moves through the area. See the forecast details below for timing. Rain could be locally heavy and a gusty storm is possible. Please monitor the forecast. If the front slows down and moves through the afternoon, the chance of widespread gusty storms would increase. At this time, widespread severe weather is not expected. Friday will be dry but a weak cold front will cross the area Saturday and a chance of some showers and perhaps a storm will be with us. Sunday and Monday both look dry, but there is quite a bit of uncertainty in the Sunday evening through Wednesday time frame.
A warm night is in store with lows in the 60s to near 70. Clouds will be sparse early, but could increase toward Thursday morning.
A cold front will bring some showers and possibly a few storms starting late Thursday morning. The rain should arrive in the Finger Lakes before 10am. It looks to arrive in Binghamton around 12pm and moves east into the Catskills around 2pm. This will not be an all day rain. I only expect a 1-3 hour period of rain and it will end in your area. Clearing will also follow once the rainfall ends. There is a chance that any storms could produce locally heavy rainfall and perhaps some gusty winds. Widespread severe weather is not expected, but if the front slows down and crosses later in the day, the chance of strong storms would likely increase. Please monitor the forecast. It will still be warm Thursday with highs in the low to mid 80s, but it should turn slightly less humid Friday and Saturday behind the front.
The chance of scattered showers Saturday is 30%. Sunday and most, if not all, of Monday looks dry with highs in the low 80s. Tuesday looks like some showers and perhaps some storms with highs around 80. The chance of rain is 30%. Next Wednesday looks mainly dry with highs around 80.
