FORECAST DISCUSSION:

A Heat Advisory goes into effect for portions of the region today due to the potential of dangerous heat this afternoon. Temperatures are expected to soar into the 90s along with high humidity.

There is a bit of uncertainty about whether or not we reach the mid 90s due to the timing of when storms start to develop around the area later today. The earlier the storms pop up, the lower the chance for the mid 90s. The later the storms, the higher the chance. Any activity that does develop is likely to be slow moving and will sit over that spot for a while due to a lack of a steering mechanism in the upper levels. This could lead to localized flash flooding.

Precipitation tapers as the sunsets. However, this is not the only rain the Southern Tier will observe on the 7-Day. The cold front that produces the showers and storms today, stalls out over the northeast and transitions into a quasi-stationary front. The boundary provides the moisture and instability for showers and storms more or less through the remainder of the weekend.
