Showers should become a bit more pronounced into the overnight, especially south and southeast. The rain could be heavy at times south and southeast. Lows will be in the low to mid 60s. Rainfall near Binghamton should range from 0.05” to 0.25” but should approach 0.50” to 1.0” or more well south and southeast. If any storms develop, locally higher totals will be likely. The chance of rain is 40% around Binghamton, but increases to 70% the farther south and southeast you are located.
A slight chance of a few showers and perhaps a storm will be with us Friday as well. I’ll keep the chance of precipitation at 20%. There will be lots of extended dry time; it will not rain all day long. I have increased the chance of rain on Saturday. I expect a 40% chance of rain or storms. There is a decent amount of uncertainty in the Friday and Saturday forecast, so follow WBNG’s forecast for any changes. Highs Friday and Saturday will be around 80.
By next Sunday, the chance of showers or storms will increase to 60%. 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.
