Latest Forecast Update From Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth:
What a beautiful way to kick off the weekend, temperatures more typical for the end of May with highs reaching the upper 60’s and even low to mid 70’s! That all changes though as we round out the weekend as our next area of low pressure will be moving through.
The cold front from this morning is off to the east now and we have enjoyed a beautiful afternoon, a secondary cold front to our west will never quite make it to us as our next system approaches us from the south.
Here is our storm system now (6pm), south into the Gulf of Mexico pumping up tremendous amounts of moisture to help fuel this system.
It has brought rounds of severe weather this afternoon and will continue into the early hours of the overnight tonight.
As the system moves north so does the severe threat, bringing a slight to enhanced risk for severe weather mainly through the Ohio valley, however, south of Albany has been placed in a marginal risk for severe weather for late Sunday night and into Monday morning.
As we head into Sunday, it will begin dry but mostly cloudy.
By Sunday evening we will begin to see some light to moderate showers begin to break out around the region, right now that looks to remain north of Albany, at least until the overnight hours.
As we head later into Sunday night the cold front will inch ever closer, as it does this the coverage and intensity of the rain looks to increase. This looks to happen after midnight from West to East, a line of thunderstorms could develop into the wee hours of Monday morning.
This is going to be another pretty unsettled week with temperatures close to average, but there is the threat for rain almost every day, with the exception of Tuesday which looks to remain partly sunny. We warm up once again for the end of the week into the start of the weekend.
Have a great night!
