The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologists Steve Caporizzo, Rob Lindenmuth, and Kevin Appleby.
After a couple snow showers and a cool start to your Tuesday morning, temperatures rose into the 40s to near 50 with peeks of sunshine. Pretty typical mid November day across the Capital Region!
With clearing skies overnight and relaxing winds, temperatures should drop a bit lower than Monday night, but not to the same levels as Sunday night. We will see temperatures bottom out in the low to mid 20s.
With high pressure in control, a great deal of sunshine is expected the next two days. High temperatures will be near or slightly above normal Wednesday, with highs in the low to mid 50s.
High pressure will slide to the east for Thursday and Friday, allowing for a south to southwesterly flow to begin. That’s ahead of a storm system currently emerging off the Pacific in Western Canada that we are tracking for late Friday into Saturday.
Temperatures will be above average both Thursday and Friday, with the potential to crack the 60 degree mark on Friday with the breezes picking up.
The best chance for rain will be overnight Friday with the front coming through. Temperatures won’t rise much behind the front on a windy Saturday that will see increasing sunshine. Gusty winds out of the northwest for Sunday support the chance for some lake-effect snow showers.
We will then see a period of below-average temperatures the week of Thanksgiving. We are monitoring the chance for another storm to swing through in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, with a considerable chill set to arrive by the Holiday weekend.
