Scattered rain showers expected for the midstate this weekend

Posted August 12, 2017

As the storm system passes by, a few showers and thunderstorms should pop up across Central New York.

After an overnight low around 54, Saturday should be sunny, with a high near 76 and north winds around 5 miles per hour.

We're tracking one disturbance after another across the Southeast and this is resulting in more rain and occasional thunderstorms.

NIGHT: Partly cloudy in the evening, then mostly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of showers after midnight. Temperatures are in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

Scattered and isolated showers and thunderstorms will form over the foothills Friday and spread to the northern plains by early afternoon. Expect a cool night: the low will be around 58. Highs in the mid 70s. Thursday will also be mainly sunny with temperatures remaining in the 80s.

Chances for rain increase statewide, overnight and into Saturday morning.

We finally end our unsettled weather pattern on Wednesday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid-80s.

The high should be near 80 with cloudy skies. The exception is Friday, when there is a 50-percent chance of rain during the day and a 30-percent chance at night.

Saturday. Partly sunny. Afternoon shower/storm chance.

Thursday. Partly sunny. Scattered showers and storms possible.

After a wet start to the work week, the Piedmont and Triad got a bit of a break from the showers and storms Wednesday and Thursday. The low at night will be around 66.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms should continue into the early and possibly mid afternoon hours before tapering off for the latter half of the afternoon. Mostly cloudy with a high near 84.
