The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologists Steve Caporizzo, Rob Lindenmuth, and Kevin Appleby
A stray shower produced an early morning rainbow to start the work week! The rest of Monday saw intervals of clouds and sunshine, with temperatures warming into the upper 70s and lower 80s – a pretty solid day overall!
Clouds will continue to thicken as our next storm system approaches the region. Rain will arrive from south to north beginning around 10 PM Monday.
Temperatures will remain on the mild side as this storm system moves in. We’ll see overnight lows in the 60s for much of the region, a couple degrees higher than what we saw Monday morning.
A flood watch is in effect south of Albany, including Greene and Columbia Counties. The rain will be heavy at times in spots, with the steadiest of rains hanging on until about lunchtime.
Afterwards, the precipitation chances will become more scattered. While not necessarily depicted on Futurecast, we anticipate periods of drizzle to continue in-between showers.
Temperatures will be held in check on Tuesday due to cloud cover and rainy conditions. We will begin the process of drying out later Tuesday.
This upper-level low will pull away from the Capital Region on Wednesday, but its proximity will be enough to trigger a few showers during the afternoon hours. Temperatures will rebound compared to Tuesday, with many reaching the 80 degree mark.
Winds will pick up for Thursday and Friday as another system approaches the area. Ahead of this storm, which is expected to arrive overnight Thursday, southerly winds will pump in warmer, more humid air. High temperatures will push the mid 80s.
Friday and Saturday will be a bit cooler with high pressure building later Friday. Then, temperatures really begin to climb heading into the start of next week. Another run to the 90 degree mark isn’t out of the question on Sunday!
