August 7 weather forecast: Rain likely


(Friday, August 7th 2020) We’re in and out of scattered rain showers and a few thunderstorms Friday. The weekend is mainly dry, but really warms back up again.

There’s a new system coming close to the Southern Tier Friday.

There will be batches of rain showers with a few embedded thunderstorms throughout the day.

The combination of clouds and some rain will keep the temperatures on the cooler side in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

The showers gradually taper off by Saturday morning.
