The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologists Steve Caporizzo, Rob Lindenmuth, and Kevin Appleby:
Tuesday was a much nicer day across the Capital Region, with clouds gradually decreasing from north to south. High temperatures were ever so slightly below average, with most of the region staying in the 60s.
With high pressure settling in to our north and mostly clear skies, temperatures overnight will plummet. A Frost Advisory has been issued for areas to the Northwest, including Hamilton, Warren, Essex, and Herkimer Counties with low temperatures there expected to drop into the low to mid 30s in spots.
Elsewhere, it will still be cool, but not to the same magnitude as most of us drop into the upper 30s and lower 40s. A nearly calm wind will allow for patchy fog to form by Wednesday morning.
Once any morning fog burns off, it will yield to lots of sunshine Wednesday. Temperatures will be pretty similar, if not slightly warmer, than what we saw on Tuesday.
Make sure to grab the sunglasses as you head out the door Wednesday morning. That – and maybe a jacket for a chilly morning!
Temperatures will inch up slightly again for Thursday, with more of us reaching the 70 degree mark. Some more clouds may filter in the region during the afternoon hours.
We have one little bump in the road for Friday in what is an otherwise phenomenal week ahead weather-wise. More than anything, we expect more cloud cover, but a fading system to our west may have just enough energy left to produce a few showers locally.
The tradeoff for a cloudier Friday? A warmer, sunnier weekend ahead! Temperatures will be closer to 80 by the end of the weekend, with an even better opportunity to reach the lower 80s by the middle of next week.
By next Friday, temperatures could be between 15 and 20 degrees above average, in the mid-80s!
