Latest Forecast Update From Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth:
Wow! This is not the weekend for any outdoor activities, unless you have a heavy sweater or a jacket on! Temperatures will mainly remain in the 40’s with a stiff northwesterly wind which will make us feel more like the 30’s this afternoon!
Alright, the system that brought us the rain from yesterday and the leftover showers this morning has shifted east and will now bring us a gusty northwesterly wind through the afternoon today.
Now, most of us will remain dry through the afternoon today, however, some of us, especially north and west of Albany in the Catskills and southern Adirondacks will see some wet snow flakes. We can’t totally rule out the possibility for some wet weather into southern Vermont and into the Berkshires as well.
We will get a little bit of a break this evening becoming mostly cloudy with a few clear breaks through the overnight, but a few areas of patchy drizzle will be possible as well, especially during the evening hours.
Our next system which is currently in the middle of the country will be moving east this afternoon and evening, so by tomorrow morning we will be mostly cloudy and we will once again turn wet… Some of us even seeing some snow!
Not everyone will see the snow, right now with the latest model guidance it appears that locations mainly over 1,500 feet and higher will be likely seeing the snow which will be heavy and wet.
Here is what we can expect through Sunday afternoon… Very manageable amounts but with this being the last weekend of April, not something that any of us would like to see!
Beyond Sunday we stay below average with highs into the upper 50’s to near 60 with the chance for a few showers each day as a frontal boundary will be setting up very close to us. If it sets up north we will be warmer, if it sets up south it will be cooler, something we will be watching very closely.
Have a great Saturday!
