Binghamton Weather From Below-0 to 46 Tuesday
Are you ready for snow and 46 degree weather. The latest President's Day forecast in the Greater Binghamton area is calling for some crazy shifts in the forecast that would make George and Abe confused, especially for tonight and in to Tuesday morning as you wake up with Glenn and Traci.
As of this writing, the National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the entire Hawk listening area in effect from 5pm Monday thru 7am Tuesday. According to WBNG Meteorologist Brian Schroeder, the weather will be dramatically changing in the coming hours with some warm weather in the forecast for Tuesday. Overnight will be the focus that could make for some interesting travel on Tuesday morning.
The center of the storm will track very close to Binghamton, perhaps slightly west of Binghamton. This track is absolutely crucial in the forecast because this determines how much precipitation we receive and how long it remains snow before a changeover to rain. With our current storm track forecast, the low will pass just to our west to result in a change over to rain Tuesday. There will be a ton of precipitation with this storm because the moisture source taps into the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico.
For us here in the Twin Tiers, this means many things:
1) Precipitation begins as periodic light snow.
2) Steady light snow develops after 8 p.m.
3) Snow mixes with sleet and freezing rain after 2 a.m. Monday night.
-General 2-5" of snow expected Monday evening and night
4) Temperatures climb into the low to mid 30s by sunrise Tuesday
5) Mixed precipitation changes to all rain Tuesday morning with pockets of freezing rain in the Catskills.
6) Soaking rain continues through much of Tuesday-- 1-2" of rain likely.
7) Heavy rain may result in localized flooding.
