The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologists Matt Mackie and Kevin Appleby.
Clouds stuck around longer than expected Wednesday across the Capital Region, and some even saw a brief light rain shower. With high pressure sliding above our heads overnight, all indications lean towards some of these clouds dissipating overnight, allowing temperatures to drop in the low to mid 40s for most of us.
High pressure will slide offshore Thursday, allowing our winds to shift out of the south. This will allow temperatures to rise well into the 60s with more sunshine.
Thursday should be a great October day, but the weather will quickly deteriorate Friday. Clouds will thicken, and rain will become more widespread into the evening. Breezes will pick up with this storm strengthening offshore.
Saturday looks like the wettest of the days. Temperatures will be steady in the 50s. Winds will intensify further late Saturday, ultimately peaking Sunday morning.
Much cooler conditions are expected for Sunday and Monday. With the storm still close by on Sunday and a strong northerly breeze behind the system, more showers, and potentially some mountain flakes, are expected throughout the day.
Drier weather moves in by the work week, and temperatures will begin a warming trend. We could once again see temperatures rise into the mid to upper 60s!
