The National Weather Service out of Binghamton says a front and low-pressure system will move through the region today bringing some showers, thunderstorms and gusty winds with above average temperatures.

Dewpoints rise as we see the sun and feel a warm southwesterly flow that will bring above-average temperatures into the lower 70s today. A cold front moves in tomorrow creating a chance for snow Tuesday night into Wednesday.
