ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) –

AVERAGE HIGH FOR JUNE 26TH: 81°

AVERAGE LOW FOR JUNE 26TH: 56°

WEDNESDAY SUNRISE: 5:33 AM

WEDNESDAY SUNSET: 8:47 PM

Happy Wednesday! Sunshine starts today with a few clouds increasing into the afternoon as we track the risk for showers and thunderstorms across the region. The window for these storms looks most likely to develop around 3 pm and wrap up by 8 pm. The Storm Prediction Center has the Twin Tiers in a Marginal Risk for strong to severe storms developing into the afternoon hours. The main concern with these would be heavy rain and gusty winds. Rainfall totals look to stay at or less than a quarter of an inch – but higher amounts can be expected in any pop-up storms. Winds remain breezy out of the south helping to warm us up into the afternoon into the mid-80s. 

A few showers and storms linger into early tonight with partly cloudy skies. Clouds continue to decrease as temperatures fall close to 60 degrees for overnight lows. A weaker area of high pressure builds in keeping up clear and dry into late tonight and for your day Thursday.

Thursday we top off in the low to mid-80s once again with dry conditions and sunny skies returning. Friday and Saturday we track that unsettled pattern returning with showers and storms possible Friday afternoon into the day Saturday. Temperatures these days will be in the low to mid-80s before a cold front pushes through late Saturday helping to keep us mainly dry Sunday but cooler with temperatures in the upper 70s.
