THURSDAY SUNRISE: 7:36 AM
THURSDAY SUNSET: 4:48 PM
Dry for Thursday night with decreasing clouds. Winds shift from west to southwest and lows in the mid to upper 20s.
High pressure to our south leads to some sunshine for early Friday. Early sunshine combined with a breezy southwest wind helps temperatures into the mid to upper 40s for highs, which is above average for this time of the year. Low pressure tracking up the coast leads to increasing cloud cover for the afternoon. Clouds trapping in some heat through the overnight with lows near 30 degrees. Chance for showers returns into the predawn hours Saturday.
Early freezing rain is possible early Saturday with temperatures in the low 30s for the onset of showers. Showers transition to rain for the late morning into the afternoon as highs reach into the 40s. How far north this system makes it into the region plays a role in how much rainfall we see, but currently not expecting a washout. Breezy northwest winds set us up for lake-effect Sunday, but the best chances for showers stays to our north. Still, we can’t rule out a few light showers for us in the Twin Tiers. Otherwise, limited sunshine and highs near 40 degrees. Low pressure moving over the Great Lakes brings a chance for rain and snow early next week.
