A deep trough of low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere will continue to reside over the Great Lakes and northeast through the balance of this week. As a result, a daily chance of showers and possibly a few thunderstorms are in the forecast.

Some fog is possible by morning, but it should not be as thick or prevalent as Wednesday morning. Lows will range in the low to mid 50s. I expect partly sunny skies Thursday with highs in the low to mid 70s. The chance of precipitation is 40%. There may be a thunderstorm or two, but once again, there will also be a lot of dry time.

Friday through Sunday will, as mentioned above, also feature a daily chance of some shower or thunderstorm activity. The chance of precipitation each day is as follows: Friday: 40%, Saturday: 25% near Binghamton, but 40% SE, and Sunday: 30%. Highs will be in the mid 70s will climb to near 80 Friday through Sunday. Keep in mind that these percentages may climb or fall based on little disturbances that may develop in the trough of low pressure mentioned above.

Monday looks mainly dry for now with highs around 80. I’ll keep a slight chance (20%) of a few showers or storms in for Tuesday, and I’m going to keep sun & clouds in the forecast for Wednesday. Highs will be in the upper 70s to near 80 with lows in the 50s to near 60.
