Forecast focus is shifting to a coastal storm Sunday

Friday: Cloudy early turning partly cloudy. Wind: S 3-8 High: 33-39

Friday Night: 40% chance of snow showers; 30% north. Wind: E/SE 3-8 Low: 23-28

Forecast Discussion:

A weak disturbance will slide through the mid Atlantic region tonight and we could see some light snow develop. The farther north of Binghamton you are located, the lower the chance of seeing precipitation. Any accumulations will range from a trace to perhaps an inch. Lows will range from the single digits early to upper teens. As clouds increase, the temperatures could slowly increase.

Friday looks quite pleasant with highs in the mid and upper 30s with some sunshine expected to develop. Friday night a low passing off the coast in the Mid-Atlantic could bring a chance of some light snow showers. Lows will be in the 20s.

Saturday looks unsettled with a 30% chance of occasional snow showers. High will be in the mid 30s.

It continues to look as if a coastal low will develop and bring some snow to the Twin Tiers late Sunday into Sunday night. There is still a lot of uncertainty in potential snowfall totals, but if we take a direct hit, it could amount to a foot or more. At this time there appears to be a low chance of any mixing precipitation.

As that storm moves away, the snow will wrap up early Monday with highs in the low to mid 20s. Tuesday and Wednesday are also shaping up quietly with partly sunny skies and highs remaining below average in the low 20s. Overnight lows Sunday through Tuesday could be in the single digits. Temperatures through all of next week look to remain below average, and in some instances, well below.
