Tropical moisture from Ida moves into the region for midweek. Ahead of the system, increasing moisture for us into Wednesday morning. Rain becomes likely into the Northern Tier during the morning, then spreading across the Southern Tier shortly after. Farther north you go, less likely to see rainfall. Portions of the Finger Lakes, including northern Steuben and Schuyler counties, just seeing a chance for showers. Heaviest rain looks to set up over northeast Pennsylvania, this includes Bradford County. Otherwise, cloudy and cooler with highs Wednesday near 70 degrees. Rain continues early into the night, but tapering from west to east into the early morning hours Thursday. Lows into the low to mid 50s. Highest rainfall totals for the day in the Northern Tier, where locations could see 1-2″. Localized higher amounts possible into northeast Pennsylvania, which has prompted the Flash Flood Watch. Average rainfall of 0.25-0.50″ close to the New York and Pennsylvania border. Around 0.10-0.25″ of rainfall for Schuyler and northern Steuben counties. Highest amounts of rainfall from this system will fall south and east of the Twin Tiers.
