The Latest Storm Tracker Forecast by Meteorologist Kevin Appleby:
Sunday was a generally overcast day featuring our lowest high temperatures since the start of September. We saw scattered showers and downpours across the viewing area, but I must commend the immediate Capital Region for managing to avoid the worst of the wet weather two days in a row.
We’re tracking some moisture in PA/NJ this evening that is working its way towards our neck of the woods. That’s why tonight’s forecast again features scattered showers/downpours.
Low temperatures will be above average, but a bit lower than what we’ve seen recently. Most of us drop into the low 60s, and some patchy fog is possible once again with muggy conditions and light winds.
Monday will start similarly cloudy compared to Sunday, but I think we sneak in more peeks of sunshine compared to Sunday. That said, we once again run the risk for some scattered showers and downpours to develop.
High temperatures will be pretty similar to what we saw Sunday, seasonable for this time of year. The humidity will hang around.
We will see a brief break in the storminess for Tuesday, especially with recent guidance delaying a cold front a few hours. Ahead of the front, skies will be partly sunny, and high temperatures will creep up closer to 80.
The cold front will arrive later Tuesday night, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms that will linger for much of Wednesday. Wednesday will be cooler, with a lot of us struggling to reach the 70s.
Behind the front, we turn less humid, brighter, and seasonably cool. Thursday looks like it will be a struggle for anyone to reach 70!
Dry conditions will carry on into the weekend. Sunday’s forecast depends on the exact track of Hurricane Lee. That said, at this time I believe the biggest impacts we may see locally are an increase in cloudiness as well as a bit of a breeze. Model consensus continues to keep Lee away from us.
