Latest Storm Tracker Forecast by Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth
Another very frigid morning, many places waking up near or below zero this morning with places through the Adirondacks nearly 10 to 15 below zero! We will rebound and warm higher than we were able to for Thanksgiving, but it does leave us quite a bit cooler than where we should be for this time of year.
We have the potential to break two more records today as well. The record low is 5 degrees for this date and we will come awfully close to that before sunrise. The record low high temperatures is 25, and with forecasting a high of 27, we will come very close to that as well. However, by this weekend these cold temperatures will be a distant memory as we will be dealing with near normal readings back into the 40’s with some rain by Saturday night.
Most of Saturday will remain dry, but by noon time we will become mostly cloudy ahead of our next system which is currently brewing in the Midwest.
By 5 or 6 in the evening on Saturday expect showers to begin to develop from southwest to northeast as that moisture begins to build in for us.
As it continues to rain overnight we could see pockets of very heavy rainfall into early parts of Sunday morning.
When all is said and done, we expect a half an inch to an inch of rain to have fallen by Sunday afternoon. Lesser amounts will be experienced the further north you go, the higher amounts will mainly be confined to about Glens Falls, south and east.
Beyond that we do turn to a more unsettled pattern once again heading into the start of the next work week, however it does appear that the bitter cold will be gone… At least for now…
Have a great Friday!
