(Thursday, July 9th, 2020) The heat and humidity peak Thursday into Friday with feels like temperatures well into the 90s. A few passing rain showers and storms are still possible.
The heat and the humidity continue to take center stage.
Temperatures will still soar well into the 80s and the low 90s with dew points around 70.
This will result in heat indices close to or above 95 degrees.
This is why the National Weather Service has a heat advisory for counties along and east of I-81 and the Finger Lakes including Broome County.
High pressure generally keeps the area rain-free Thursday.
However, a system coming up the coast is expected to come close enough to cause some scattered rain showers and thunderstorms to develop later in the day mainly south and east of Binghamton.
Friday, there’s a new threat of some showers and thunderstorms from a new system interacting with this hot and humid airmass.
This wave of low pressure will be low to leave and is expected to keep our weather a little unsettled, yet still quite humid.
