Midday-Mid Afternoon Rain

The weather pattern over the eastern half of the United States remains stagnant today.

A stalled out front is draped from Kansas City to New York City, keeping the Finger Lakes on the cooler, north side.

Another wave of rain will move east along the front today, arriving in our area by the midday hours. The rain should last into the mid afternoon before ending by 4 pm.

A few thundery downpours will be possible within this area of rain, especially over the southern half of the region. I am not expecting severe thunderstorms at this time. Severe weather will remain along and south of the front in many of the same areas it impacted yesterday.

With the front to our south, plenty of cloud cover, and the afternoon rain, temperatures will remain below normal today. Look for highs to top out in the mid 60s.

And Again Thursday, but not Friday

Tomorrow will be very similar to today with another shot of rain moving in.

The rain Thursday looks like it will come in a bit later during the mid afternoon and should continue into the evening.

Like today, a few thundery downpours will be possible, but severe weather is not expected.

High temperatures will reach the mid 70s before the rain arrives.

A cold front will cross the region from the north overnight Thursday, finally leading to a dry day on Friday.

Skies will be sunny, but cool air will be firmly entrenched with highs in the mind to perhaps upper 60s.

Uncertain Rain Chances

Saturday, Sunday, and Monday will all have a chance at some rain, but the chances remain uncertain.

A storm track from central Canada, southeast through the Upper Great Lakes, and into the Mid-Atlantic will set up. A series of weather systems will take this path through the weekend.

For Saturday and Sunday, the best chance for rain will come in the afternoon hours across the Southern Tier. The rain chances look more widespread for Monday.

Temperatures will continue to be on the cool side through the weekend. Highs will be warmest on Saturday with upper 60s. Mid 60s are more likely on Sunday with low 60s on Monday.

Rain chances will drop by the middle of next week, but temperatures will bottom out with highs possibly not escaping the 50s either Tuesday or Wednesday.
