Happy Thursday Twin Tiers! We are off to a sunny start this morning with some patchy fog, otherwise dry to start your day today. A cold front is moving towards the region this afternoon bringing the chance for a few showers and thunderstorms into the afternoon and evening. Clouds will increase through late morning as this front progresses, increasing that rain chance. We could potentially track some strong to severe storms this afternoon, looking most likely in western New York and Pennsylvania. These would produce heavy rain along with gusty winds. Rainfall totals again looking to range between a quarter to half an inch with higher amounts in any thunderstorms that do develop. Highs this afternoon in the lower 80s for most of us.

Tonight, showers and a few storms linger early with mostly to partly cloudy skies late. Lows temperatures overnight will cool into the upper 50s. Following this front, we will track cooler and more comfortable conditions into Friday. Clouds will decrease giving way to some sunshine on Friday with an isolated shower still possible. Highs in the mid-70s. Saturday and Sunday also looking mainly dry with a few clouds otherwise mostly sunny into Sunday. Highs on Saturday and Sunday in the mid to upper 70s.

Early next week currently looks mainly quiet with sunshine Monday, some clouds Tuesday and rain chances moving in for Wednesday. High temperatures staying in the upper 70s flirting with 80 degrees.
