A pattern change back to the cool and rainy weather starts Thursday. Expect rain, heavy at times. Rain tapers later Thursday into Friday.
- Steady rain Thursday through the afternoon, scattered showers Thursday evening.
- Damp, cool weather stays through Friday.
- Saturday looks to be the “pick day” for the upcoming holiday weekend.
- Rain, possible thunder Sunday, and Memorial Day Monday.
- Staying a little unsettled through the middle part of next week.
Here comes the rain again:
A trough of low pressure is setting itself up in the upper levels of the atmosphere, and will persist into Friday across the East.
Meanwhile, down at the ground, an area of low pressure is evolving across the Ohio River Valley. This moisture laden storm will slowly slide to the northeast Thursday which will lead to some rain.
The most favorable time for heavier, steadier rain will be between 9am-2pm Thursday. The rain will taper to on and off showers by dinnertime Thursday evening.
Temperatures will be cooler too. Much of the day while we are dealing with steady rain temperatures will be in the 50s. Not only will want to have the umbrella handy, but the light jacket too.
Damp, but not as rainy Friday:
The storm system will be slowly sliding through or just to the south of us Thursday night and then should pull away to the east on Friday. The end result for Binghamton should be scattered showers lasting right through Friday.
Temperatures will still be stuck in the 50s to near 60s Friday.
Memorial Day weekend:
Will it be completely dry for the three day holiday weekend? No, but we should have some decent dry periods over the weekend, especially Saturday. If you’re planning any outdoor activities, Saturday will be the best day for that.
The last couple of days we were concerned about the timing of a frontal system for Sunday. At this time it is looking more and more like Sunday will have more numerous showers and possibly some thunder.
The frontal system will be moving to our east Memorial Day, which means we will still see some showers and storms, but it isn’t looking as wet as Sunday.
