Near record warmth continues to grip the Twin Tiers this afternoon. Binghamton just missed the record high temperature by two degrees this afternoon! The record high for this date is 61º from 1984. Interestingly but not surprisingly, November continues to stay on track to finish as one of the top 5 warmest Novembers for Binghamton on record.
Colder air is in the horizon as a slow moving cold front approaches us from the west. The front will cross the Twin Tiers from west to east tonight. Winds will shift from the southwest to northwest late tonight. Scattered rain showers will accompany the front. We may see brief periods of light steady rain overnight.
Showers will likely linger well into Saturday afternoon as the sluggish cold front drifts east of the area. Areas south and east of Binghamton, such as northeast PA and Sullivan County will be the last to clear from the showers. Saturday will be far from a washout but it will look rather dreary outside. Cooler, yet seasonable air will be return Saturday with highs near 40 degrees.
Skies begin to clear late Saturday as high pressure sets up shop. This will keep skies clear with plenty of sunshine for Sunday and Monday. Temperatures during this period will max out near 40 degrees.
Another storm system will pass to our west Tuesday and Wednesday, producing showers for both days. Temperatures will spike up into the mid to perhaps upper 40s as winds blow from the south. We turn drier and cooler toward the end of the week with highs near 40 degrees.
