FORECAST DISCUSSION:

A warm Wednesday is on tap for the Twin Tiers as temperatures warm into the mid to upper 80s. A few locations near 90F. Sunshine prevails for much of the day. Humidity remains at comfortable levels.

The hottest air mass of the summer arrives tomorrow! Temperatures warm into the low to mid 90s widespread across the region. Dew points also spike into the upper 60s to near 70 degrees which will make the feel-like temperatures close to 100. Heat Advisories are already issued for some counties in the Southern Tier because of Thursday’s heat. Scattered showers and storms are possible late in the afternoon/evening.

Conditions cool off a bit for Friday, but the humidity does not break.

The cold front that is expected to bring showers to the region on Thursday stalls out over us by Friday. The stalled out front allows for multiple rounds of moisture to ride along the boundary. Friday marks the beginning of an unsettled pattern that continues into early next week.
