BINGHAMTON, NY (WIVT/WBGH) – High pressure slowly slides east of us during the day Thursday. This starts to open the door for more heat and humidity to begin to work in during the afternoon. Highs should rise into the low to mid-80s under a good deal of sunshine.  That sun may be filtered at times by high clouds.

So, if you have beach or pool plans, you are in luck! Enjoy!

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 once again.

Come Friday evening, a shower/storm or two may pop up ahead of an approaching cold front, but for the most part Friday looks to be dry. 

Showers linger for the first half of the day Saturday. But things should dry out very quickly so we can have a sunny and dry afternoon. The nice weather will stick around through the long holiday weekend.
