12/7: Colder air, but brighter skies

Weather Blog

Latest Storm Tracker Forecast by Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth

We start out this Friday morning with a few flurries pushing through the region… This is with the cold front that will help to usher in much colder air for both today and into Saturday. 

Once these nuisance flurries pass by late morning we will be left with a mix of sun and clouds through the afternoon with a breezy northwest wind which will also help make us fee like we are in the 20’s for the majority of the afternoon. Winds could gust between 25 and 30 miles per hour this afternoon before slacking back through the night. 

Highs today will range from the upper teens through the north into the low 30’s through the Capital region which will leave us nearly 8 to 10 degrees below normal for this time of year.

Tonight with clear skies and that cold northwesterly flow we will easily drop to near 10 here in Albany, through the north temperatures will drop from 0 to 10 below zero by Saturday morning. 

A pretty quiet stretch of weather is expected through the weekend and into next week, however there is a slight chance that we see some light flurries around as a band of lake effect snow from Lake Ontario may try to drift into the region through Saturday afternoon and evening. 

Beyond that, things look rather quiet, chilly for sure, but we are not tracking any big storms in the foreseeable future. 

Have a great Friday!- Rob
