Happy Tuesday! High pressure begins to move out of the Twin Tiers today as we begin your morning with some patchy fog giving way to some sunshine. Clouds will increase through late morning along with the chance for showers and thunderstorms into the afternoon and evening. The Storm Prediction Center looks to keep a portion of the Twin Tiers in a Marginal Risk for strong to severe storms to develop this evening. Best timeline for these storms is between 2-9 pm. Any storms that do develop could produce gusty winds and heavy rainfall. Rainfall totals look to range from 0.20″ – 0.50″ with locally higher amounts possible in any thunderstorms that do develop. Otherwise, humidity increases today with warm temperatures, highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Tonight we remain mostly cloudy with showers and storms lingering. Lows overnight on the milder side in the low to mid-60s. Another frontal system beings to move towards the Twin Tiers on Wednesday which will lock in mostly cloudy skies and bring another risk for showers and thunderstorms which looks limited to the afternoon and evening hours. Highs on Wednesday near 80 degrees. We will then track a second cold front that will bring showers and storms Thursday with highs similar, in the low 80s.

Once that cold front moves through we track drying conditions and decreasing clouds into Friday along with cooler temperatures. Highs on Friday and into the upcoming weekend look to remain below average in the mid to upper 70s. Humidity will be low, and sunshine will returns as high pressure moves in!
