A frontal boundary will wobble around the region over the weekend, bringing in occasional rain showers and some cooler temperatures.
Friday will be rather cloudy, though some occasional breaks of sun will also be possible, especially come afternoon.
Precipitation will be limited to just a few stray showers, again, mainly in the afternoon. Many areas will get through today with no rainfall. Those that do see rain should only see brief periods. A couple of rumbles of thunder cannot be ruled out, but there should not be thunderstorm activity like yesterday.
High temperatures on Friday will mainly be in the upper 70s, though some low or even mid 80s are likely, especially across the Southern Tier from Elmira to Binghamton.
Dewpoints will remain elevated near or above 65 degrees, making it feel muggy even if it is not as hot.
A batch of showers may move through the region after midnight tonight, possibly with some thunder. This will be especially possible across the southeastern quadrant of the region.
Saturday will be similar to today in that most of the time, most areas will be dry. Stray showers will be possible, but unlikely for any given location, at any time. Late in the afternoon, there will be the potential for another cluster of showers and storms, again mainly in the southeastern areas.
Temperatures will be a bit cooler with highs mostly in the mid 70s. Some higher elevations will stick to the low 70s, while a few urban areas may sneak into the upper 70s, especially if some extra sun works out between clouds.
Rain chances will increase everywhere on Sunday. Numerous rain showers are expected throughout the day. There may still be some dry periods mixing in, though.
Sunday will lose a few more degrees, with most areas in only the low 70s. Some hilly areas may not escape the upper 60s.
Weather Next Week
By Monday, the frontal boundary will begin to push southeast of the region and depart. There is uncertainty about how long the showers will linger. The further south in the area you are, the higher the chances for rain, and the longer the chances for rain will linger.
Temperatures on Monday may get a couple degrees higher than Sunday, with more mid 70s than low 70s. Tuesday also should have highs generally reaching the mid 70s.
After some sun early Tuesday, clouds will increase and some late showers will be possible as the next system moves in. It is too early to tell when the rain showers may arrive, and they very well could hold off until after sunset.
Wednesday looks rainy, though the forecast uncertainty is high this far out. There will be at least some potential for heavy rain to monitor over the coming days.
Temperatures on Wednesday will depend on the rain but will probably not get much higher than the low 70s.
Thursday will also have highs in the low 70s. The forecast is currently optimistically calling for dry weather, though showers could easily linger from Wednesday’s system.
A period of mainly dry weather is expected into next weekend and possibly the following week. Temperatures will remain seasonable in the low and mid 70s.
With fewer clouds and showers expected, nighttime temperatures should turn cooler with 40s and low 50s possible.
