The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologists Kevin Appleby and Rob Lindenmuth
While missing out on the severe storms both Monday and Tuesday, there was no shortage of rainfall here in the Capital Region. Some spots picked up well over an inch of rain, including nearly four and a half inches in Old Forge, Herkimer County!
The nuisance showers and downpours from Tuesday afternoon and evening will taper in the overnight period. By Wednesday morning, we will wake up dry with partly sunny skies.
Tuesday night will be cooler than Monday night. Temperatures will mostly be in the 60s as the humidity drops.
Wednesday will certainly be drier than the start of this week. A breeze out of the northwest will lead to some cloudier intervals at times during the afternoon.
There may be enough forcing, particularly in the higher terrain, to squeeze out a stray shower or two during the afternoon hours. Otherwise, with intervals of clouds and sunshine, temperatures should push the 80s for most of the Capital Region.
Thursday starts off with filtered sunshine, but clouds will be on the increase throughout the morning. High temperatures will be a degree or two lower than Wednesday.
Rain showers will develop for the afternoon with some accompanying thunder. The rain may be heavy at times, lingering into the overnight.
A leftover shower is possible for Friday morning as we once again turn breezy. Temperatures will be seasonable once again.
We are not anticipating a washout for this weekend, but there are opportunities each day for some rain/thunderstorms.
After a break the past few days, allergy conditions will worsen to conclude the week.
