BINGHAMTON, NY (WIVT/WBGH) – Scattered showers/storms are around today, especially during the afternoon and early evening thanks to a cold front sliding in. Highs warm into the low 80s this afternoon, and it’s muggy too.

Any storm that pops up this afternoon and evening will have the potential to become strong to severe producing gusty winds and large hail. Thankfully, the risk of severe storms is low Friday here, but higher in Eastern NY.

The cold front responsible for the few showers/storms across the Southern Tier to end the week stalls and kind of falls apart Friday night into Saturday to the south of us. This may lead to us having to deal with a spotty pop-up shower over the weekend, but much of the last weekend of August is looking dry at this time and good for outdoor activities!

Highs over the weekend initially drop into the low to mid 70s Saturday but rebound into the 80s to end the weekend with more humidity Sunday too.

It’s a steamy start to next week with a spotty afternoon/evening storm or two on Monday with highs well into the 80s to near 90!

It looks like there’s a better chance of some showers and storms Tuesday ahead of a cold front. Some of these storms Tuesday afternoon and night could end up being strong.

We should turn cooler and less humid with a few lingering showers Wednesday.

Today: Partly cloudy and warm with a few scattered showers and storms. A couple storms may become strong/severe with damaging winds and large hail. Highs in the low 80s.
