Absolutely brutal today for late April…High winds up to 50mph…Temps averaging 15-20 degrees below normal, and Yes…Snow again in many locations. Wind chills for much of the day were in the teens and 20s.
Here is what we expect for Lows tonight…skies will be clearing and the winds will slowly drop off….if we reach 26 in Albany…that would tie the record dating back to 1975
On Thursday…..Skies will start out Partly Sunny…then clouds increasing from the SW during the afternoon as a storm approaches. Even though we will not get close to the Average high of 61….it will still be better with much less wind.
A Small wedge of dry air sneaks in for Thursday, but our attention shifts to a large storm in OK….there is a lot of moisture with it. Plus-Energy will “Phase” with this system later Thursday as it tracks south of us on Friday. This means a COLD rain…..and even the chance of a few wet snowflakes in the Catskills and a mix Friday Morning across the Adirondacks and Mountains of New England.
As for the 7-Day Forecast…we are hopeful we may sneak in a nice day on Saturday-We need it ! Unfortunately the very active weather pattern continues. Another significant storm Sunday…once again a COLD rain, with the chance of some mixing in the higher elevations….then another storm on Sunday. Another tough week ahead.
I hope you all have a nice evening……We just need more patience, and I am running out of it,,,Come on Spring Warmth ! Steve Cap
