The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologist Jill Szwed.

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Happy Wednesday! Summer is winding down, but it won’t go away quietly. Following a comfortable morning, temperatures will heat up close to 80 degrees this afternoon.

A strong fall front is on the way. This will bring periods of heavy rain and rumbles of thunder starting this evening. There is a greater concern for severe storms for western/central New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.

Storms won’t arrive until sunset or even after dark. A severe storm or two could impact the Adirondacks. For the rest of us, periods of heavy rain and rumbles of thunder will be around through midnight. A few more waves of heavy rain will arrive into Thursday morning.

Temperatures will quickly cool down all in time for the start of fall. Autumn doesn’t officially arrive until 9:03 PM Thursday.

The crisp fall air will stick around through the weekend. Conditions will remain dry until the start of next week. Monday looks to be the wettest day of the stretch.
