4/7/19: Rainy start to an unsettled week

Weather Blog

Latest Forecast Update From Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth:

Even though we are talking about a wetter start to the work week, temperatures won’t fall too much to kick us off.

Low pressure continues to spin into Wisconsin this evening and is expected to continue a path through the Great Lakes through the night.

As it does this a warm front will be pushing to the north as well, this is why we will still see temperatures mainly in the 60’s for Monday, however it gets a little caught up in Southern Vermont so those of you there and into northern Berkshire county may be stuck in the mid to upper 50’s. As the warm front pushes north in the morning we could see a few pockets of heavy rainfall as well.

Along with that heavy rain I would not be shocked if you saw a flash of lightning or heard a clap of thunder. Once the initial round of rain moves through by 9am we may see some drying, but that doesn’t last too long.

Those of you north and east of Albany, unfortunately are looking at a fairly wet afternoon, however, Albany south and west will enjoy some dry time and that is why temperatures in those locations will rise into the mid to upper 60’s once again late in the day. But more rain will move through, this time mainly scattered and we could still hear a rumble of thunder as we get a brief stream of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. 

It looks like after about 5 or 6pm Monday evening we should all begin to dry out heading into Monday night and skies may actually clear a bit as well.

Most of Tuesday looks dry but cloudy, an area of low pressure will dive south out of the Great Lakes and will spark a few showers for Tuesday afternoon and evening which will cool our temperatures back for Wednesday and Thursday. We remain unsettled with the chance for showers through early next weekend and after a brief warmup Friday, back into the 60’s, we do cool down back to average for next weekend into the low to mid 50’s.

Have a great week!
