Another Chance for Severe Weather This Week
The unsettled pattern will continue this week across the Twin Tiers. Tuesday we will see the chance for a stray storm or too, but not in the way of severe weather. Our next chance for severe weather comes on Wednesday as a cold front rolls through the region. More moisture is expected to be pumped into the region by Wednesday afternoon and this only adds fuel to the fire by allowing storms to pop and potentially become severe. The greatest hazards across the region right now look to b...
Another Day, Another Threat for Severe Weather
Its another day across the Twin Tiers and yet again we are facing the threat of seeing severe weather this afternoon. Just like the past couple of days we will be seeing the threat of strong/damaging wind gusts and hail. Today is a little different however because unlike yesterday, we could see the chance of an isolated tornado as the atmosphere will consist of more spin than it did yesterday. Storms will begin to pop in Western NY around 1 PM and move towards the east and thro...
Another Line of Strong Storms
Another strong line of storms is set to take aim at the Twin Tiers this afternoon. This line of storms is likely to form over western NY around 1 PM this afternoon and move into our western viewing area which includes Steuben and Potter counties. That line will continue to march east through the afternoon hours and could contain strong gusty winds and small hail. Tornadic threat is near zero as there is does not look to be enough spin in the atmosphere today. Biggest threat today...
Afternoon Storms this Weekend
Hazy, warm and humid conditions are likely over the next several days with chances for showers and thunderstorms. Much of the weekend will be dry, but a few thunderstorms are possible, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. Any storms that develop will have the potential to produce heavy rain and gusty winds. Thunderstorm chances will continue into the middle of next week before a cold front ushers in cooler and drier conditions by Thursday and Friday.
Humidity will Return Late Week
After a brief break in the humidity, it'll be on the rise once again late week. Sunshine on Thursday will give way to increasing clouds with late day thunderstorms possible. Dew points will rise into the 60s, making it feel a bit more humid. That trend will continue through the weekend when temperatures are expected to rise well into the 80s with dew points close to 70.
Sunshine Fights Back This Afternoon!
On this Wednesday we will dry out to a mix of sun and clouds, as highs rise close to 80 degrees! For tomorrow, after a dry and clear morning start, late day showers and t-storms will return to the region. High temps remain around 80. Friday will be very similar to Thursday, with more hazy sunshine and some spotty t-storms. Thunderstorm chances remain in place for this weekend as temperatures rise into the mid and upper 80s respectively.
Humidity Drops Wednesday
A cold front will settle through the region Tuesday night with drier conditions expected on Wednesday. Skies will become partly sunny with lower humidity and temperatures into the upper 70s. A few showers are possible Thursday and Friday with temperatures remaining in the 70s. 80s will return over the weekend along with more humidity and the chance for a thunderstorm.
Rain Returns Tuesday
Low pressure will track across Pennsylvania on Tuesday with scattered showers and thunderstorms likely. The heaviest rain will fall to our south with amounts locally here in the Twin Tiers only expected to average up to 1/4". Localized higher amounts are possible in any thunderstorms that develop. Drier and less humid conditions will return on Wednesday with highs in the mid 70s.
Heavy Rain Possible This Week
After a gorgeous weekend we will be turning our attention towards rain as we get into the work week. On Tuesday, we could be looking at some heavy rain entering the region with the chance of some flooding. Right now, the Weather Prediction Center has the area in a slight risk for excessive rainfall on Tuesday. This could be upgraded as we head into Tuesday, but models are still in disagreement. The GFS model has the heaviest of rain right over our region, but the Euro has the heavies...
Another Beautiful Night
Last night across the Twin Tiers we had a gorgeous night with low humidity and temperatures in the mid 50s. Good news is that we are in for another one. Temperatures tonight will crash into the low 50s and some locations could make their way into the upper 40s! Keep those windows open and that A.C. off with another comfortable night on the way! -Alex
Perseid Meteor Shower
The annual Perseid Meteor Shower will peak early next week, but conditions may actually be more favorable for viewing this weekend. The moon will become brighter in the coming days as we're expecting a full moon next week. The best advice is to find a dark place and spend a good half hour star gazing as it takes a few minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark setting. We're forecasting mainly clear skies both Saturday and Sunday nights.
More T-Storms Thursday Afternoon
A second cold front will pass through the Twin Tiers Thursday afternoon with another round of showers and thunderstorms. Out ahead of the front, temperatures will warm into the low and mid 80s. Cooler and less humid conditions are likely on Friday with highs in the mid 70s. Temperatures will remain in the 70s over the weekend with dry conditions expected.
We have entered the month of August and although that means hot temperatures and sunny days, we will also be turning our attention to the tropics. August is the beginning of the heart of Atlantic Hurricane season and although here in the Twin Tiers we don't see the category 5 winds, we do see heavy rain. Numerous tropical systems have made significant impacts to our region during tropical weather season. The strength of a hurricane, although important, is not the main threat for this ...
Today we stick with an abundance of sunshine as high temps climb back to the mid 80s! Good breaks of sunshine remain in place for the upcoming weekend, but a chance..
Well it's about time we get to see some dry weather across the Twin Tiers. With all the rain that has occurred over the past week across the region your lawn should definitely be in need for a trim. Over the next few days you will be in luck as the weather will be prefect for mowing that lawn. You will however, need to be on the lookout Saturday with an isolated storm possible and on Sunday with a passing shower, but temperatures will be warm and humidity in the comfortable range...
Highs will remain in the lower 80s for today as humidity levels fall! Plus, that all comes along with a good deal of sunshine. A drier and mainly sunny weather pattern..
After several days of showers and storms rolling through the Twin Tiers, much drier and comfortable times are ahead. As we end this week we will see plenty of sunshine and the humidity will be dropping as well. Over the course of the next two days, dew point values will hover around 60 degrees, making it much more comfortable to be outside. The threat for wet weather does return for the weekend, but both days consist of isolated showers and storms. -Alex
