High pressure moves east Monday night. Still, mainly clear for the overnight with patchy fog developing late. Lows near 60 degrees.

Next weather-maker approaches the region Tuesday. Increasing clouds through the morning with a chance for showers and thunderstorms returning by the afternoon and continuing for the evening. The Storm Prediction Center keeps most of the Twin Tiers in a Marginal Risk for strong to severe thunderstorm development (1 out of 5, 1 being the lowest). Threats include gusty winds along with heavy rainfall in any strong to severe thunderstorms that may develop. Average rainfall of 0.25-0.50″, but localized higher amounts possible in any strong to severe thunderstorm. Warm and humid for Tuesday with southwesterly winds ushering in the moisture. Highs into the low to mid 80s and dew point temperatures rising into the 60s. Scattered to isolated showers and thunderstorms overnight and lows in the low to mid 60s.

A cold front Wednesday brings another chance for showers and thunderstorms. Best timing for rainfall again in the afternoon and evening hours. Otherwise, mainly cloudy skies and highs near 80 degrees. A second cold front passes the region Thursday bringing the chance for a few showers and isolated thunderstorms. Highs Thursday again near 80 degrees. Behind this front, cooler and less humid air returns to end the workweek. High pressure builds into the region, which will help keep us mostly dry. Highs Friday and through the weekend into the 70s and overnight lows in the 50s.
