BINGHAMTON, NY – (Thursday, April 9th 2020) A strong cold front brings a line of rain, some snow, gusty winds, and much colder weather back to the Southern Tier to close out the week.
A fairly strong cold front moves across the area midday Thursday.
Ahead of the front it’s rainy and windy. Not far behind the front the air is cold enough for snow. Expect the rain to mix with some wet snow as the front passes between 10am-2pm.
There may even be a slushy coating for the higher terrain by Thursday afternoon.
Temperatures will fall through the 40s and the wind speed picks up.
Gusts over 30-40 mph from the west could cause issues with down tree limbs and power outages.
A blustery northwest flow around Thursday’s storm is going to keep bursts of lake effect snow in the forecast Friday.
A coating to a few inches of snow is definitely possible by Friday evening. It’s also going to be much cooler and still windy.
At least the weekend and Easter Sunday look pretty good so far! We’ll have increasing sun Saturday. Sunday morning starts out sunny with clouds increasing later in the day.
