The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from meteorologist Kevin Appleby:
Chilly! That’s one way to describe Sunday across the Capital Region, a day which featured intermittent showers, and even some snow flakes in the higher terrain! The storm that made for a dreary Friday and Saturday will slide away from our region.
Low temperatures will be in the 30s and lower 40s with the persistent breeze gradually subsiding.
After a chilly, cloudy start, high pressure will move in from the west for the start of the work week. This will lead to increasing sunshine by the afternoon hours.
High temperatures will be a few degrees below average. Low temperatures Tuesday morning will be the coldest since mid-May, with most of us waking up to temperatures in the 30s. Don’t get used to that theme!
A weakening disturbance will move in overnight Monday into Tuesday. A stray morning shower could accompany this, but really we’ll just see more clouds than anything else to start the day. Brighter by the afternoon, with seasonable high temperatures in the 50s to near 60.
A strong upper-level ridge will build overhead for the second half of the work week. Highs will be 10-15 degrees above average Wednesday through Saturday! Low temperatures some nights won’t fall below the 50s.
Rain chances remain minimal until the latter half of the upcoming weekend – because of course there needs to be a storm around the Capital Region when it’s the weekend…
Timing and placement of this next system is not agreed upon by model guidance at this time. But one thing is for sure – November looks to begin with below-average temperatures, an average that will be just 55 degrees by that time!
