Weather forecasters say heavy rain and gusty winds may pose a few problems for some people in the Binghamton area.

The National Weather Service predicted total rainfall would average between two and three inches through Wednesday morning. Isolated areas of more than four inches are possible.

In Broome County, some NYSEG customers lost electric service early Tuesday afternoon. Utility spokesman Bob Pass said the outage in the town of Binghamton appeared to be weather-related. He said a large old tree on Quaker Lake Road apparently snapped because of a strong wind gust. When the tree fell, electric lines were taken down and a pole was snapped. Quaker Lake Road was closed between Hawleyton Road and the state line. Fire police units from the town of Binghamton and Silver Lake fire departments provided traffic control while crews worked to make repairs.

Forecasters say Wednesday is expected to be mostly cloudy with showers likely and a possible thunderstorm.

Thursday and Friday should be partly sunny while Saturday and Sunday are predicted to be mostly sunny.
