Happy Wednesday Twin Tiers! We are tracking the potential for some severe weather today as a cold front approaches the region. Showers and thunderstorms enter this morning with heavy rainfall at times. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a slight risk for severe weather for southeastern portions of the Twin Tiers including Bradford, Tioga (NY) and very southeast portions of Tioga (Pa) county. Gusty winds, hail, and cloud to ground lightning are possible with any storms that do develop along with heavy rainfall. Rainfall totals look to range between 0.25″ – 0.75″ when all is said and done, but locally higher amounts are possible in any thunderstorms that do form. Overall, a mostly cloudy day with rain and storm chances with hot and humid conditions. High temperatures in the low to mid-80s this afternoon.

Tonight we remain mostly cloudy with a few showers and storms lingering. Overnight lows fall into the low to mid-60s with patchy fog possible once again after the midnight hour. Heading into Thursday, a few showers will linger with clouds slowly decreasing as we progress through the afternoon. This is as a cold front moves through. Behind this front, we will see much-improved conditions with lower humidity and cooler temperatures. High on Thursday reach into the mid to upper 70s.

As we move into Friday and the upcoming weekend temperatures remain below average in the low to mid-70s Friday and Saturday with mostly sunny skies and low humidity – almost feeling fall-like outside with breezy conditions Friday. Sunday we climb closer to 80 degrees but remaining on the comfy side. Our next storm chance looks to arrive Monday and into Tuesday of next week.
