Latest Forecast Update from Meteorologist Steve Caporizzo:

Well today was a very weird day. A Wedge of VERY cool air got locked into the Hudson Valley and to points north. Our neighbors in the Catskills had a great spring like day with highs 55-60…and the Berkshires were in the 50s.

A VERY STRANGE Day…..

Colder air trapped in the Hudson Valley with a light NNE wind draining it down from the Champlain Valley….on both sides of the river-the Higher Spots were MUCH Warmer….away from this funneling effect.

In fact some places in the Catskills near 60.

Here is what the temps looked liked with elevation over Albany at 5pm today….

Need a Hot Air Balloon right-Spring at 2-3,000 feet

This is what the temperatures looked like

at 4:30pm

A Day of Contrast.

Strange day for sure. A light north wind wedging colder air right now the Hudson Valley…..but East and West…esp higher spots in the 50s….in fact close to 60 in the Catskills.

By the way, 3,000ft over Albany-the temp is near 50.

Latest Surface Maps

Stalled out front just south of us…Very Cool North…Warm South…in the middle-clouds/showers and drizzle.

A weak storm moves over us tonight-another band of rain…then a break tomorrow.

The storm heading for the Great Lakes moves over us Friday with scattered rain/wet snow showers…Not a big deal.

FUTURECAST

Weak storm moves over us tonight with another period of rain…on Thursday we will be in between storms-so mostly cloudy-but mostly dry with temps in the 40s.

Another storm will drift over us Friday and increase the chances for rain/snow showers-Wet snow higher spots.

Next 48 Hours:

TONIGHT: Cloudy-murky…area of rain moving through-late tonight drizzle.

Watch for a possible light glaze of ice-esp the valleys east of the Green Mountains.

THURSDAY: Mostly Cloudy, but mostly dry, slight chance of a shower.

FRIDAY: M.Cloudy-scattered rain and snow showers (mainly rain in the valleys). Not a big deal.

There is slight risk a glaze of ice may develop across some of the valleys east of the Berkshires and Green Mountains.

Heavier ice is likely across the St. Lawrence Valley and Champlain Valley as colder air sags south a bit late tonight.

7 and 10 Day Forecast

The trend is for cooler temps for sure….but really not cold for this time of year at all.

No big storms-but-we are watching some of the computer models and they are hinting at a storm off the East Coast Wednesday-so that will need to be watched. When that goes by-A Shot of colder air.
