The cold front that brought storms to the area yesterday afternoon has since cleared the region yet, the Southern Tier will still be left with lingering clouds for the morning. Clouds will thin for the afternoon but at the same time more smoke from the wildfires out west will settle into the region. Some of this smoke may even mix down to the surface leading to poor air quality.
The quiet and dry weather only last so long as the next system will be approaching the region starting Thursday. This will result in scattered rain showers developing in the first half of the day followed by storms in the second half. On the back side of this system, temperatures will be well below average for this time of year.
