Forecast Discussion:

Today looks like a mostly dry day, but boy, is it going to be HOT! Highs will be near 90. Officially, Binghamton has never hit 90 degrees in May, at the airport, in the 70+ years of records. There is a chance that could change today. The record highs today is 86 degrees. Due to the heat/humidity there is a small chance of a few PM/evening showers or storms. Any storms that may develop could produce large hail and gusty winds. The ‘best chance’ of any storms will be well north/northwest.

Sunday will be hot and humid, but the risk of strong to severe storms is higher. A strong cold front is expected to slide through later in the day. There is some uncertainty in the severe threat level so please monitor the forecast for any changes this weekend. The chance of rain is around 80%.

Sharply cooler weather arrives Monday morning with highs in the 60s. Tuesday and Wednesday look quite nice with highs near 70.
