BINGHAMTON, NY (WIVT/WBGH) – Warmer and slightly more humid weather slowly creeps back to the Northeast Wednesday. Rain chances start to go back up as well to close out the week.

It turns warmer and a bit more humid Wednesday.  Highs warm into the mid to upper 80s Wednesday despite the sun fading behind more clouds later in the afternoon into the evening. 

Keep up with watering your plants because we don’t have another chance of rain again until late Wednesday night and into Thursday. A couple of cold fronts will bring scattered rain showers and a few thunderstorms back to the Southern Tier Thursday. However, there will be plenty of rain-free time.

Another front passes by the first half of the day Friday, so expect some passing showers then as well. 

Then drier, cooler, and less humid air briefly returns Saturday before the summer-time heat builds again as we flip the calendar over to August.
