11 pm Weather Update: We are seeing steady light rainfall across the area this evening. The main area really seeing the rain is into the Finger Lakes. There is an Areal Flood Advisory that remains in effect until midnight for northwestern portions of Schuyler County. If you are out traveling tonight keep this in mind as ponding on roadways will be a concern. The remainder of the seven-day forecast remains on track.

Showers and storms are moving into portions of the Northern Tier this afternoon. Temperatures across the area are all in the 70s helping fuel a bit of instability in the atmosphere. Humidity levels are in the muggy territory closing in on 60. We will keep the rain threat throughout the evening with lows dropping down into the mid 50s.

Unsettled weather will continue on Wednesday, with the steadiest rainfall looking to be during the morning hours. Rainfall is looking to remain on the light side with shower activity becoming more scattered in coverage by the afternoon. Highs on Wednesday will be in the low 60s. We will get a brief break from the active weather on Thursday, though mid/high clouds will limit the amount of sunshine we see. Scattered rain showers are quick to return on Friday. It will be a cool and breezy end to the week, with highs in the mid to upper 50s expected.

Heading into the upcoming weekend, at this vantage point, looks to keep the potential for showers in the area. Saturday looks to be mainly dry, besides for spotty showers late day. The better chance for showers will come on Sunday. Temperatures will remain on the cooler side with highs looking to near 60 degrees.
