07/21/2021 Evening Update: Finally a bit of good news ahead for a few days.

Forecast

The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologist Steve Caporizzo.

Well once again…some places picked up more rain late this afternoon and evening, but overall it was a much better day…and better times are ahead.

Rainfall for July is at 7.69″This is now the 6th Wettest July dating back to 1826″ We will likely be making it into the Top Five this year. Some areas-esp in Rensselaer County have had close to 16″ for July

Smoke Cloud Update…..It is much thinner today….Cleaner air on the way. With a push of drier air from the NW….the smoke cloud will get pushed south and skies will not be as milky…they will actually look blue !

Latest Surface Map…..5pmCold front continues to slip southward….Drier air arrives tonight and really nice on Wednesday as High Pressure moves in from the Northern Great Lakes. There is a weak disturbance north of the Plains-this may clip us on Friday with a chance of a shower-but nothing widespread.

FUTURECAST….Weak disturbance moves through this evening with a few showers…then clearing out. High Pressure moves north of us tomorrow for a really nice Thursday-Low humidity and dry ! On Friday….mostly dry, but a disturbance may clip us in the afternoon, with the chance of a pop up shower in spots…but short duration.

TONIGHT: Evening Shower-then clearing-patchy fog-great night !

THURSDAY: Partly Sunny-Dry and Comfortable.

Hey-Check this out…..

Worth a Drive to take a look with all the rainfall and runoff. The Cohoes Falls are raging right now-unusual for the middle of the summer…Right now approx. 900,000 Gallons of water per minute are flowing over the falls.

7 and 10 Day Forecast…..At least a better looking Weather Pattern. Really nice weather Thursday into Saturday….now early Fri afternoon, can’t rule out a brief shower-nothing widespread. Mon/Tue look mainly dry as well….so we will take it.
