Forecast Discussion:

A weak trough of low pressure is expected to drop through the area overnight tonight. As it does, some lake effect snow showers off Lake Ontario may drop south and dissipate as they do so. The chance of snow shower is highest north and lowest near and south of Binghamton. The chance of snow is 30%. Winds will gust to 35mph from the northwest at times with lows in the 20s.

Tuesday and Wednesday are dry. Temperatures begin rising significantly Wednesday. Highs Tuesday will be in the low to mid 30s under partly cloudy skies. Overnight lows Tuesday could range widely from 10-20 degrees. Some filtered sunshine through high clouds is possible Wednesday. Highs will rise into the mid 40s and continue climbing until Saturday.

Thursday will warm up with a 20% chance of a few isolated late day rain showers. Most of the day looks dry. Highs climb into the mid 50s. Showers and rain are likely Thursday night as a large storm develops and moves into the central Great Lakes Friday. The low will move into western Quebec Friday and pull a warm front into the area followed by a sharp cold front later in the day. It will be the warmest day of the week with highs making a run at, and perhaps surpassing, 60 degrees. The chance of rain is 60%. Winds could gust to 35mph.

For St. Patrick’s Day weekend it will turn colder, but nothing silly. There is a slight chance of snow flurries or flakes Saturday with highs in the mid to upper 30s. Next Sunday, St. Patrick’s Day, looks pleasant with sunshine and highs in the mid 30s. A weak disturbance could clip us next Monday and bring a few rain and/or snow showers to us. The chance of precipitation is 30% with highs in the upper 30s.
