The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologists Matt Mackie, Rob Lindenmuth, & Kevin Appleby.
Wednesday saw the return of sunny skies up and down the Capital Region, but the wind made is presence felt out there as some areas observed wind gusts greater than 30 MPH!
The winds will ease up as we progress through the overnight hours. Temperatures will fall to near 60 in the immediate Capital Region, 50s elsewhere as clouds increase by dawn.
A storm system will race by to our south on Thursday. We expect showers and some thunder to arrive by the middle of the day, especially to areas south of Albany.
The rain could be heavy at times. High temperatures will be a few degrees lower than Wednesday, remaining in the 70s to near 80 degrees.
As mentioned, this is a quicker storm, so we will clear out by very early Friday. More sunshine is expected, but once again this will be accompanied by a bit of a breeze out of the west-northwest. Most of the News10 viewing area is expected to reach the 80 degree mark to conclude the work week.
The weekend, unfortunately, appears to be unsettled. Neither day will be a washout, but a system swinging through late Saturday is expected to fire off scattered showers and storms. Some of that will linger into early Sunday, so keep an eye to the skies if you have any outdoor plans.
