*The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a Winter Weather Advisory from 9 AM to 4 PM Wednesday for Seneca, Southern Cayuga, Steuben, and Yates counties.*
Northerly winds continue to usher in cooler temperatures Tuesday night. Temperatures drop into the low to mid 20s for lows under mostly to partly cloudy skies. The concern Tuesday night is with temperatures falling below freezing as melted snow may refreeze and create slick conditions along roadways and sidewalks.
Next weather-maker makes an impact on the region Wednesday. Turning cloudy in the morning with a chance for freezing rain and rain mix returning. Higher elevations have the best chances for freezing rain, which may create a light glazing of ice on untreated surfaces. Any precipitation turns to all rain for the afternoon as temperatures warm to near 40 degrees. Chance for rain showers continues into the night, otherwise, clouds the case. Temperatures remain in the 30s through the overnight.
Lingering rainfall Thursday morning, then a break into the afternoon. Another area of low pressure developing starts to make an impact late day. Chance for rain increases Thursday evening into the night as a warm front lifts through the region. Highs Thursday to near 50 degrees. Rain likely Thursday night and lows near 40 degrees. Total rainfall from Wednesday through Thursday under an inch. Localized flooding may be a concern, especially near small streams and creeks. Also, there is potential for ice jams with snowmelt and rainfall runoff causing rivers to rise and possibly break up any remaining ice that may jam downstream.
Low pressure lifts north and a cold front drags through the region Friday. Lingering rain turns to snow as temperatures drop through the afternoon. Highs Friday in the mid to upper 40s, then to near 20 degrees for overnight lows. A seasonable weekend ahead with a chance for flurries early Saturday.
