Forecast details:
Some high clouds and clear sky will mix tonight but with a south wind, overnight lows will remain in the mid to upper 40s.

I’m still keeping Friday dry for most of the day and area. There is a slight chance (20% or less) of a few late day showers or a sprinkle west and north. If we see any showers they would likely hold off until after about 8pm. A strong cold front will slice through Friday night and the chance of rain will vary from west to east as the precipitation along the front looks to weaken. I’ll put the chance of rain at 70% west and north, 40% in Binghamton and 30% southeast. I’m keeping snow showers out of the forecast at this time.

A morning sprinkle or shower is possible Saturday, but the chance of this is low. Most of the Saturday looks dry with a 20% chance of precipitation. Clouds may hang around for most of the day with highs around 40.

Sunday and Monday look nice with some sunshine both days. Highs will be around 40 with lows in the 20s. A larger storm will move into the northeast Tuesday. It will be a warm storm so the precipitation with it will be rain. Highs will be around 44 Tuesday.

Next Wednesday and Thursday look a bit unsettled with highs in the 40s. The chance of precipitation is 40% Wednesday and 30% Thursday. It could be cold enough for some rain or snow showers next Thursday.
