Latest Forecast Update from Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth:
We hit 70 degrees this afternoon in Albany… Hope you got a chance to get out and enjoy the warmth and the dry weather because it will not be like that to end the weekend.
A frontal boundary which had stalled out over the region on Friday decided it wanted to push north as a warm front which allowed the warm surge of air that we all enjoyed this afternoon.
Most of the entire east coast of the country were enjoying temperatures will into the 60’s and low to mid 70’s this afternoon!
That all changes as we go into the second half of the weekend. As early as 6 tomorrow morning areas west of Albany will begin to see some rain shower activity, that is in association with the cold front which is now well to our west, essentially splitting the state of Ohio in half.
By 10am we will be dealing with steady rain showers, a few embedded heavier downpours and even a rumble of thunder is possible as this front crosses the region and we will be dealing with a few hours of wet weather to start Sunday.
By 3pm most of the wet weather is shifting east and we all will begin to dry out, however with strong northwesterly winds we could potentially get in on a few wet snowflakes, especially if the lake effect from Lake Ontario can make its way into the region.
After an early morning high on Sunday in the mid 50’s we will drop through the afternoon to the upper 30’s and mid 40’s. Our airmass is moving in from the west and will stick around through the start of the work week, so expect another cool start to the week with temperatures mainly in the 40’s.
Once we get beyond the cooler start temperatures try to rebound into the 50’s once again into the middle of the week and we do look to make a run at 60 once again by Friday and the start of next weekend, but we will once again be dodging a few rain drops.
Have a great Night!
