The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologists Steve Caporizzo, Rob Lindenmuth, Matt Mackie, and Kevin Appleby.

We’ve seen a great stretch of weather over the last few days here in the Capital Region. This includes Wednesday, which once again featured lots of sunshine, low humidity, and high temperatures predominantly in the 70s. All good things must come to an end, as we’ll see clouds thicken tonight. Some spotty light rain showers are possible closer to dawn.

Overnight lows will be seasonable, with most of us remaining in the 50s. Winds will be light & variable.

There will be isolated showers Thursday morning, but rain coverage is expected to increase for the afternoon hours. The rain could be locally heavy at times, but we aren’t expecting a washout.

Cloud cover and occasional rainfall will keep our temperatures lower than what we’ve seen over the last few days. It will be a struggle for most of us to even reach the 70 degree mark, about ten degrees below average for this time of year.

Heading into Thursday night, there could be some heavier rains clipping our region, though guidance is split on this possibility. Either way, we expect the chance for scattered showers to linger into the first half of Friday before we dry out for a brief period later in the day.

Friday will feature temperatures rebounding back to the mid and upper 70s. Saturday will feature similar temperatures. Speaking of Saturday, a system up in Central Canada will drop a cold front through the Capital Region. Once again, we do not expect a washout, with some isolated showers popping up on that front.

The second half of the weekend looks dry with more sunshine and near-seasonable temperatures. Some more showers pop into our forecast by Tuesday of next week.
