The forecast for Sunday at Watkins Glen has remained mostly consistent with the rest of the week's forecasts. Partly to mostly cloudy conditions will be present through much of the day, varying in height as the air aloft begins to saturate; westerly winds are expected to bring in moisture above the region. South to southeasterly winds at the surface will keep temperatures in the upper 60's to low 70's, but will also allow dew point temperatures to approach 60 °F as moisture moves in from the Atlantic. The saturated atmosphere coupled with minor lifting could result in some scattered showers through the region in the afternoon; a surface trough approaching from the northwest is expected to bring a larger chance for precipitation overnight.
