Clouds increase tonight as a storm system nears the area. This will trigger frequent rain showers for Friday, some of which may be locally heavy. A cold front will pass through the area late Friday before cooler, drier air returns back to the Tiers. This means Saturday will be cool and comfortable under partly cloudy skies. High pressure will result in dry conditions for the holiday weekend. Columbus day looks like the winner this weekend as temperatures flirt with 70 degrees.
Cloud cover will continue to increase tonight ahead of an approaching storm system. The cloud cover will prevent our temperatures from falling as low as in recent nights. Overnight lows will be in the low 50s for most.
A storm system will move into the northeast Friday. This will provide our area with frequent and widespread rain showers as early as the predawn hours then become most widespread during the afternoon. A rumble of thunder cannot be ruled out, but we believe the clouds will limit the thunderstorm potential. Thus, most towns will see periods of light to moderate rain with a few embedded downpours. Areas south of Binghamton and northeast Pennsylvania will have the best shot at hearing thunder on Friday. Overall, total rainfall is expected to average out between 0.25-0.50" with locally higher amounts, especially well north of Binghamton.
A cold front will pass our area late Friday. Drier and cooler air will flow in on the back side of the front. This will bring an end to the rain showers by midnight. High pressure builds in for the weekend.
The holiday weekend is looking dry with a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will gradually warm each day into Columbus Day. Saturday will be the coolest with highs in the 50s and Monday will be the warmest with highs near 70 degrees.
A weak front will bring more clouds and a few showers to the Tiers next Tuesday but we are not expecting a washout by any means.
