Another nice day across the Twin Tiers, seeing a mixture of sun and clouds. Temperatures this afternoon were pretty comfortable with highs making it into the low 80s. Cloud cover will continue to increase this evening and an isolated light shower is possible. Light rain from an approaching system will make its way into our region by early Tuesday morning. Overnight lows will stay on the mild side, with temperatures only falling into the low 60s.

The first round of rain that we will see from this approaching disturbance will come during the early morning hours on Tuesday. We look to see a break from it mid-morning, but will still be under cloudy skies. As we head into the early and mid-afternoon this is when the second round of rain will work in. We will see steady light rain with scattered thunderstorms within this system. There is the potential to see some localized heavy rain from this system as well. Rain totals across the twin tiers is looking to be on the range of .25″-.75″, heavier amounts are possible in areas where stronger storms develop. Localized flooding in poor drainage areas are possible. Highs for Tuesday will be in the low to mid 70s.

Calmer weather will make a return mid-week. We will see just isolated chances for showers on both Wednesday and Thursday. High pressure will build back in which will allow for dry, comfortable weather to return. Mix of sun and clouds is what we can expect for Friday and Saturday. With mainly sunny skies returning for the end of next weekend.
