FRIDAY SUNSET: 4:43 PM
A rainy start across the twin tiers with winds out of the south between 5-10 mph with gusts of over 20 mph possible into the afternoon hours. Rain may be heavy at times into the early afternoon, so if you need to head out plan some extra and take it slow on the roadways. Highs today will be well above average with that southerly flow not only bringing in moisture but very warm air, with highs in the low to mid 50s. Showers will continue through tonight with mostly cloud skies and lows dropping to the mid 30s overnight.
Rainfall totals look to range between 0.5″-1.0″ across the Twin Tiers when the system finally moves out of the region late tonight and early Saturday. Waking up on Saturday the shower chance will linger but temperatures will continue to slowly drop throughout the day. This is as cooler air filters in from the north, this will allow some lingering rain showers to transition over into snow showers, so you may want to take any plans to start your weekend indoors.
Winds then shift out of the north west into Saturday 5-15 mph helping to draw in colder air for your Sunday. Snow showers may linger with little to no accumulation expected.
Next week and New Years is looking a bit unsettled with our next weather maker moving in Monday and possibly lingering into Tuesday. Sunshine looks to try and make a return late next week.
