Latest Forecast Update From Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth:
Our storm system that is moving through the Ohio valley that brought severe weather to the south and continues to bring severe weather to the east is pushing north and east through the Great Lakes this evening. That will allow showers and thunderstorms to overspread the region as we go later into the overnight hours.
As the low pressure pushes north and west of Albany we will increase the chances for isolated severe weather, mainly confined south and west of Albany.
The biggest threat with these storms will primarily be the gusty winds that accompany them along with the very heavy rain that any one thunderstorm may produce. There is a very small threat for an isolated brief tornado, but that threat will remain well south and west of Albany.
We’ve got our initial round of rain moving through this evening, we may get a break in the action through late evening and early overnight before midnight.
After midnight the activity looks to intensify and pick up once again…
The heaviest of the weather looks to remain north of Albany, that is where the heaviest rain will fall, the severe threat should remain south and west of Albany, but any storm could turn briefly severe through the night.
Monday morning’s commute looks to be a very wet one, give yourself plenty of time on your way into work, the heavier showers will give way to scattered showers into the afternoon and we will turn quite breezy as colder air begins to be filtered into the region.
We remain unsettled most of the week with moderating temperatures by the end of the week and into next weekend, keep those umbrellas handy!
Have a great week!
