Happy Monday Twin Tiers! A dry and decent start to your morning with some patchy fog and sunshine. Unsettled weather will return for the Twin Tiers as we move into tonight, however. Clouds will increase through the afternoon today with a very isolated chance for a shower late this evening. High temperatures in the low to mid-80s. Tonight we track mostly cloudy skies, isolated showers with a few heavy bursts of rainfall as an area of low pressure moves towards the region for Tuesday. Low temperatures tonight on the mild side, falling into the low to mid-60s.

Tuesday showers and storms are likely with heavy rainfall possible through the afternoon hours. Best timeline for rainfall; initial rain moves into western portions of the Twin Tiers around 10am and finishing up for eastern portions of the Twin Tiers around your dinner time on Tuesday. Rainfall totals look to range between 0.25-0.75″ into Tuesday night. Locally higher amounts are possible where any stronger storms do set up. Localized flooding in poor drainage areas is possible. Overall, we stay on the cooler and cloudy side with high temperatures on Tuesday in the mid-70s. A few showers linger into early Wednesday with increasing sunshine into the afternoon hours. High temperatures in the mid to upper 70s.

Late this week looks to be on the dry side. Thursday a few chances for showers until sunshine and mainly dry conditions look to return for us Friday and into Saturday. Temperatures also look to climb back into the low to mid-80s for this upcoming weekend.
