11/8/19 Evening Update: Cold night ahead, more mild for the weekend

Forecast

Today ended up feeling more like December than the beginning of November! This morning featured temperatures in the teens to low 20’s, with breezy weather making it feel even colder.

To top it off, we even got a few flurries across the region! It’s true that most of us escaped the Thursday system without much in the way of accumulation, and these few flakes won’t change that outcome.

We’ve got one more frigid night ahead before temperatures moderate over the weekend. We expect mostly clear skies and calm winds, both of which help the mercury fall fast. Expect 20 in Albany, Troy, and Schenectady, and teens in the hills and mountains.

Expect cloudy and (relatively) mild weather over the weekend, with highs around 40 on Saturday and approaching 50 on Sunday. Overnight lows will bottom out in the low 30’s.

Things change in a big way for the work week. Our next big system will move in on Veteran’s Day, bringing a rain/snow mix to the valleys and snowfall to the higher elevations. Temperatures will fall off overnight and into Tuesday, and everyone should see a changeover to snow.

Temperatures will peak early in the day Tuesday around 32, then fall steadily through the day. From Tuesday through Thursday, get ready for historic cold. Overnight lows in the low teens will tie or break low temperature records. Afternoon highs could be cold enough to make history as well… The “record low” high temperature for Wednesday is 31. We’re forecasting 30. Stay warm!
