The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologist Steve Caporizzo.


Rainfall-estimates and Large Hail Reports.

Many locations hail 1/2-1″ in diameter….and Greenwich hail 1.5″

Narrow band of 1-2.5″ of Rainfall…..Some good news.

Latest Data on the Smoke for tomorrow:

Update on the Smoke from our Computer models…

Another plume of VERY thick smoke is heading south and likely spreading east over us tomorrow.

So this POOR/Unhealthy air quality will be with us on Wednesday.

Truly one of those crazy days… much. Thick smoke from the fires…..then two rounds of severe weather-many reports of hail….and the Good News-Most of us getting a dose of heavy rain-esp. those areas that missed it over the weekend-Like the Albany area.

Here are just a sampling of the Hail pictures today-so many reports from Glens Falls SE’ward towards Berkshire County…mostly Pea to nickel sized….biggest just east of Wilton-up to 1″

More hail than any reports of damaging winds. The main track of the hail from just south of Glens Falls to the Northern half of Saratoga County-Southern Washington-most of Rensselaer, & Northern Columbia Counties.

Unhealthy air Quality….in some cases VERY Unhealthful.

As per NY DEC-some of the worst smoke related air quality in 20 years.

The Visible Satellite pic clearly shows it….and a view from Whiteface-very thick.

So thick it blotted out the sun many times today.


Continues tonight.

Unhealthy air will be with us tonight into tomorrow.

When the index reaches 100, air becomes unhealthy-locally at times it has approached 200.

Fires in Quebec seem like that have gotten bigger today.

TONIGHT: Showers/Heavy T’storms through this evening-greatest threat will be for hail

TOMORROW: M.Cloudy….few more showers (less like for any severe storms)…..bit below normal.

THURSDAY: M.Cloudy-Cool-more showers

7 and 10 Day Forecast……

Stuck in this pattern into Saturday…but by the weekend-slightly warmer-esp Sunday.

Next week another slow moving storm reaches us on Monday-likely rain or showers.
