Precipitation returns to the forecast tomorrow, but thankfully not until the afternoon, so if you have any outdoor plans get those in early. Skies will stay mostly cloudy while the dry air at the surface erodes away, with scattered showers arriving after lunch time. The bulk of the rain looks to mainly be in our southern viewing area, with less rain being seen north of Binghamton. This activity will continue into the overnight, as weak waves continue to ride up a stalled boundary to our south. With clouds and rainfall, highs will scrape into the 70’s with lows staying near the lower 60’s. Unfortunately, the bulk of the rainfall is expected on Labor Day, with everything finally pushing off to the east. When all is said and done, we should see a decent amount of rainfall, but with dry conditions of late flash flood and flood issues are not a concern.
High pressure briefly builds in Tuesday, keeping us dry but return flow from the southwest doesn’t allow this to last long. Another low with a cold front arrives on Wednesday, bringing showers and storms into the forecast once again with warm conditions out ahead of the front. We’ll be watching conditions for the middle of the week for maybe a few stronger storms since we’ll have plenty of warm, moist air in place.
By Thursday and Friday, cool high pressure is back once again to wrap out the week. By this time, what remains of Hurricane Dorian could be off the East Coast near the Northeast, but the ridge should keep that away from us. Another front is likely to bring isolated showers back by next Saturday.
