Weather forecast: Rain returns as our weekend approaches

Friday looks like it’s shaping up to be a mostly dry day overall with highs in the upper 70s and chances for a few “hit or miss” showers primarily across the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes Friday evening as another system follows closely behind. There will be a decent amount of dry time between showers with Saturday being the one to watch for heavy rainfall.

A surface low-pressure system develops in the Ohio Valley along the southern edge of the frontal boundary. It meanders northward into our region Saturday to bring area-wide showers and thunderstorms. The threat here will be heavy rain that may lead to water ponding on roads as well as surging creeks and streams, lightning, strong winds and potentially even some small hail. Make sure to put in place alternate plans for any outdoor activities.

Depending on the path that this system takes could not only mean drastic differences in rain totals across the region, but with decent agreement between models you can bet there will be places that see up to 2 or more inches of rain that may come in the form of these heavy downpours. We’re also watching the threat that these storms could be strong to severe, and is something we’ll be closely monitoring over the next day or so.

The boundary lingers to our south Sunday and while we still expect a mostly dry day, isolated showers and storms cannot be ruled out. A weak area of high pressure slides into the Great Lakes and attempts to keep skies clear to start the work week. It is still unclear as to how strong this high pressure ends up being, and that will determine how long the skies remain clear. Trends are starting to keep more clouds around during the day Monday with slight chances for a shower, but trends point toward a wetter solution for the middle and second half of next week, but that can always change.
