BINGHAMTON, NY (WIVT/WBGH) – A southwesterly flow on Friday pushes more heat and humidity into the Southern tier with some sun and highs warming to, or just above 90.

From Friday mid afternoon into the early evening, a shower/storm or two may pop up well ahead of an approaching cold front, but for the most part Friday looks to be dry. Despite the scattered nature of the storms, any that do form have the capability of causing some gusty winds and even some hail.

A cold front moves through the area late Friday night.  There should be widespread showers and even a few storms Friday night and they are tapering just after sunrise on Saturday.  With high pressure and drier air building in, our weather Saturday should improve with increasing sunshine and lowering humidity after noon time.

It is cooler behind the cold front, but we are only backing off to more seasonable levels.  Expect highs Saturday afternoon closer to 80 degrees.

It is looking great for the afternoon picnics and especially the evening fireworks displays!

High pressure building in later Saturday looks to be the dominant weather feature for us as we round out the end of the holiday weekend.

There should be a decent amount of sun, seasonably comfortable temperatures and low humidity for Sunday and Monday.

The 4th of July continues to look dry in our forecast. Enjoy the holiday!
